APRIL 20 | Opening: All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party

Please join us for the opening reception of ALL POWER: VISUAL
LEGACIES OF THE BLACK PANTHER PARTY Friday, April 20.

5:00pm Members Preview and Tour
6:00pm Public Opening
Exhibition on view April 20- June 10, 2018

All Power: Visual Legacies of the Black Panther Party is drawn from a book of the same name and showcases a select group of contemporary black artists, including emerging and internationally acclaimed practitioners, women and men spanning twenty-two to seventy years of age, who have been informed or influenced by The Black Panther Party for Self-Defense.

Formed in 1966 by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, two students at Laney College in Oakland, California, and active for less than twenty years (1966–1982), the Panthers indelibly pierced the public consciousness through its visual code and social platforms. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Seattle chapter, the first outside of California, and PCNW’s presentation is timed to that.

Exhibiting Artists: Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, Endia Beal, Sadie Barnette, Bruce Bennett, Howard Cash, Emory Douglas, Kris Graves, Ayana V. Jackson, Christopher Paul Jordan, Kambui Olujimi, Lewis Watts, Carrie Mae Weems, Dr. Deborah Willis, Hank Willis Thomas, and Robert Wade.
