FEATURED ARTISTS | RITA MERCER | EBONY BLANDING | SIERRA BUSH | ELLEX SWAVONI | JAZMINE HAYES | MWANDISHA GAITOR | DUNESKA SUANETTE | JASMINE WILLIAMS | CHANDLER STEPHENS | TOYA BEACHAM | NATRICE MILLER | STEPHANIE BROWN

For her curatorial debut, Sierra King curates here. there. everywhere. A multidimensional portrait of the journey towards Black Futurity that Black Women across the African Diaspora have been pursuing in the name of freedom.

This portrait depicts the search for possibility beyond one’s current reality where they acknowledge that a change must occur. It shares with the community at-large intimate self-care and bonding practices. And opens the door to private relationships that these women have cultivated between each other.

The Black Women Artists featured in here. there. everywhere. recall collective memories, experiences and stories where they have been in pursuit of a near future beyond their reality. As it becomes a daily practice, they like many others began sharing their findings and solutions as an offering to ignite change amongst us all.

SIERRA KING, an artist, archivist and curator who is deeply committed to documenting, preserving and archiving the work and contributions of Black Women Artists.
