MMXX: The Black Artivism Capsule is a curated collection of art made by Black creatives worldwide during the 2020 pandemic. In the midst of the deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, John Lewis, Chadwick Boseman, and Kobe and Gigi Bryant, we also had to witness the world reject the racist experiences of Harry and Meghan, endure the highest unemployment rate in the country’s history, and the Trump administration called for critical race theory, along with diversity and sensitivity training, to have funding removed.
Exploring art by photographers, painters, digital creatives, and more, MMXX: The Black Artivism Capsule is a moment that explores the lives and times of Black people, as defined by Black people.
