Possible Futures – Ain’t I Beautiful?

13 January – 3 February 2017

‘Ain’t I Beautiful?’ is a group exhibition that aims to open a discussion and challenge what gives something the power of ‘beauty’. At this moment in world history, people are urgently faced with re-evaluating how they identify both individually and collectively. This exhibition highlights PoC (People of Colour) and queer artists, intentionally bringing their voices to the forefront of this discussion. ‘Ain’t I Beautiful?’ is brought to 198 Contemporary Arts & Learning through their Possible Futures program and curated by Mattie Loyce as a part of her Mission Gallery project. Mission Gallery is a travelling gallery that focuses on exhibiting PoC identified artists local to its exhibition cities.
