ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Black female art matters. Our ninth episode, “These Girls Are on Fire”, will take you into the world of eleven bold Black female artists. From quilted fabrics to amazing sculptures, we’ll show you how these artists are making the art world less pale, stale, and male. We’ll uncover how this underrepresented demographic is demolishing stereotypes and claiming its rightful place in the art world one stroke at a time.

 

A big thank you to our guest editor of Episode 9, Alexandria Hillliard. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Hilliard currently works as a producer at advertising agency Big Spaceship, where she produces television commercials for brands. Alex is passionate about creating space for black women in the media world. In her free time, she mentors other young black women who are trying to make their way into the industry.

 

“As someone who studied Art History in University, the lack of material on black female artists was glaring. The work of black female artists illustrates our world in an incredibly important lens that deserves to be shared in more spaces— whether that is in texts, galleries, museums, fairs, etc. In the coming years I hope to finally see the art world take these small steps.” – Hilliard says on this episode.
