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 law 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, Bruce Bennett, Howard Cash, Kris Graves, Ayana V. Jackson, Kambui Olujimi, Lewis Watts, Carrie Mae Weems, Hank Willis Thomas, Robert Wade, and others.
