ARTNOIR and the Meatpacking District launch the Black Cultural Festival


ARTNOIR will celebrate black culture, art and commerce with From a Place, of a Place, a month-long series presented with the Meatpacking Business Improvement District.

Starting this week, the five-part program will showcase the energy and spirit of the neighborhood through a variety of mediums, including art installations, live performances and community activities. ARTNOIR, a predominantly female collective belonging to minorities, announced the artists’ programming and upcoming programs at the end of July. The first part of the series will be a two-part exhibition and residency at The Meeting Point gallery, where 10 New York-based artists will present their work.

“The announcement of our first artist lineup in an exciting development as we look forward to the series debut,” said Tiffany Griffin, Director of Marketing, Events and Partnerships for the Meatpacking Business Improvement District. “We are honored to have the opportunity to welcome these incredibly talented artists to the neighborhood and help spark their creativity. Our team is delighted to welcome visitors to the neighborhood and to discover the program … ”

Organized by Danny Baez of ARTNOIR and RegularNormal, the Meeting Point Gallery exhibition will open on Thursday at 2 Gansevoort in partnership with Sage Realty. The first show will feature pieces by Francheska Alcantara, Daphne Arthur, Layo Bright, Kevin Claiborne, Joe Hayes III, and more.

From A Place, of a Place will run until October 28. You can find out more about the series at ARTNOIR official site.
