Black Lunch Table Artists’ Roundtable 

(BLT Session 1)
Session one of the Black Lunch Table (BLT) is open to visual artists and visual art workers of the African Diaspora who have a connection to the Hudson Valley area.Taking the lunchroom phenomenon as its starting point, BLT seeks to reify the visibility of connections and dialogue that exists between contemporary Black artists. This session will focus on the gathering of collective histories. A meal will be served. 

 

 

 


The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between artist and UNC Assistant Professor of Art Jina Valentine and New York-based, 2017 Storm King Outlooks artist, Heather Hart. The project was first staged in 2005 at the preeminent artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. The BLT has since taken the forms of audio archiving sessions, salons, peer teaching workshops, meetups and Wikipedia edit-a-thons.

BLT events are audio-recorded and transcribed in order to further authenticate both the community and its voices. These recordings will become part of an online dynamic archive dedicated to gathering the experience and perspective from around the world. Questions?
