19.11.2021 - 17.04.2022
The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) is proud to present Black@Intersection: Contemporary Black Voices in Art, a special exhibition with guest curator Duane Cyrus, coming to SECCA in November 2021. A Bessie Award nominated performer and a professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Duane Cyrus was selected as guest curator for the exhibition from a pool of more than 30 applicants. The exhibition will open Friday, November 19 in SECCA's Main Gallery.
Black@Intersection will feature Black and African Diasporic artists from North Carolina and beyond. The artists simultaneously exemplify and defy––yet continue to redefine the perceived norms around concepts of Blackness as we see it in our world. They resist the nullifying commodification of blackness into a type of monolith and do so by creating works that reify the world on their own terms.

1854 and British Journal of Photography
From 1854 and British Journal of Photography in collaboration with New Art City, welcome to Edition365: a portrait of the year that changed everything. The pandemic swept the world in March 2020, all of humanity have shared - and documented - an extraordinary experience. History has unfurled in front of our eyes; cracks in our systems have been magnified, and across oceans and borders, ways of thinking, acting and exisiting remain flux.
Uniting the voices of renowned photographers, emerging artists and everyday people alike, Edition365 is a vast and immersive digital exhibition. All of the work has been created between 11 March 2020, when the World Health Organisation officially announced a global pandemic, and 10 March 2021; 365 days, captured in 365 artworks by a vast and dynamic array of creators from around the world.
Edition365 has been curated and produced by Sammie Veeler, Don Hanson and Heloise Winstone.
