The Black Experience was the first annual event that provided a cross pollination of inter-generational, multidisciplinary art exchange through a Black cultural lens, and provided a deeper awareness around the plurality of artistic practices within SAIC’s Black community.
The African Diaspora in Chicago holds great significance, and is one of the reasons why Chicago is considered an internationally recognized cultural hub. In addition to engaging the SAIC community, The Black Experience integrated the artistic histories and practices of graduating Black SAIC students within their greater Chicago community.
