VIRAL* BLACKNESS: a zine and exhibit
Our 2021 exhibit and zine focus on the complexities of this year, Blackness and of Black emotion. With this exhibit and zine, we ask, “How is Blackness viral? How do you define or understand viral Blackness and where do you exist within it? How are you and how have you documented your experiences as Black person in the 2020?”
We are looking for different creative perspectives on this idea of viral Blackness from Black NC State students, staff, and faculty. The final product will be a small self-published magazine, called a zine. Some selected submissions will be enlarged or turned into displays in the AACC gallery.
