Black Space with Holly Bass

Black Space Art Exhibit

Black Space is an art exhibition by Holly Bass in the Great Hall of the MLK Library. Black Space is a tiny house in the shape of the District, which has been a center of Black culture since the early 1900s. As D.C. residents, we all occupy black space, regardless of ethnicity or background. Visitors will be invited to share their D.C. memories with the artist and create collaborative responses – photographs, poems, sketches, and oral histories, which will be catalogued and displayed in the house.
