BIPOC is The Theme!

BIPOC is The Theme!

National Juried Exhibition @ Buckham Gallery

Juror Tyanna J. Buie

Prizes: 1st $750; 2nd $500; 3rd $250 and future exhibition

Deadline: November 15, 2021

Submission Fee: $25

Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) artists have traditionally been underrepresented in U.S. galleries and museums. How do we make this moment in time more than a moment? Singular Black History Month exhibitions do not make up for the decades of systemic racism and omission from our arts institutes. Buckham Gallery acknowledges the need to build stronger relationships with BIPOC artists and our community. “BIPOC is The Theme,” with juror Tyanna J. Buie, is a launch pad to build new collaborations with BIPOC artists. In addition to the traditional cash prizes, Buckham Gallery will select artists to be featured in the 2023 - 2024 season.

Physical exhibition will be held April 8 - May 14, 2022 at Buckham Gallery, Flint MI
