To Build What We Become What We Dream brings together Black women artists working across and amongst geocultural multitudes. Taking its name from activist and writer Nikki Giovanni’s poem Word Poem (Perhaps Worth Considering), this exhibition acknowledges Black feminine artistic creation as a radical means for shaping worlds imagined otherwise. Their fibre-based works and techniques explore both abstracted and figurative forms, offering a model of Black women’s aesthetic practices as diasporic devices of communion, repair, and intervention.
