This year, Black Space Winnipeg features the second installment of our Afrocentric artist showcase: Nuit Noire. Nuit Noire was founded on the need to diversify a major festival for Winnipeg's art community. Nuit Noire: Illuminate Our Voices, will highlight community voices through visual art and performance art.
In 2016, the partnership between Black Space Winnipeg and Artists Exchange (the studio of Gibril Bangura) showcased the talent from Winnipeg's newcomer, African community and local artists of colour, such asMahlet Cuff, Xavier Mutshipayi, Uri Portilloi and Dubem Ukaigwe.
For 2017, we are pleased to partner with aceartinc., with support fromCulture Days Manitoba and Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Taking up space and making room for Winnipeg's diverse artistic Black community across all disciplines is our goal. Starting at 7:00 PM, catch local artists create an interactive, pro-black, artistic vision, executed through unique creativity and artistic expression. Folks are also encouraged to visit Albert Street Cocktail to celebrate local musician Malcolm Jamal Wilson's new album release and Nuit Noire after party.
