This granting initiative, which categorically references the Black Lives Thing move(southward), gestures towards the germinating financial and intellectual investment in artwork borne out of a continuing, centuries-long fight for Black autonomy, liberty, and most notably, life.  The 20 artists selected for the Portland State University Blackness Lives Matter Artist Grant Exhibition stretch the notion of ‘socially engaged artwork’ beyond its cursory definition, resulting in a drove of objects which require multiple shifts in perspective. Through installation, photography, video, painting, performance, textiles, sculpture, poetry, and printmaking, this exhibition is a microcosm of centrolineal and conflicting political, social, and aesthetic approaches.  Some awardees notice it imperative to employ fine art equally a vehicle to depict the horrors of white supremacy by swelling the effects to an unignorable size, request their audience non to plough away. The artwork of other awardees tends to the intricacies of their individual craft, or the richness of textile culture. To joy and pleasure, illustrating and narrating a better world than this, to the intersections of Blackness, indigeneity, and queerness, to secrecy, and to abstraction.  This exhibition is non only in the wake of a global pandemic, nor the two years of increased global uprisings and protests in defense of Black life, or even centuries of enslavement and imprisonment, but too; in the spirit of Black inventiveness, ingenuity, and collectivity. To learn more near the exhibition and artists visit the exhibition website: Content for the exhibition was written by Ella Ray, a Portland-based art historian, cultural worker, and curator. Editorial support by Nia Pipkin-Glover. The Black Lives Matter Artist Grant Program was established by Hashemite kingdom of jordan Schnitzer in partnership with the Hashemite kingdom of jordan Schnitzer Museum of Fine art at PSU.
