Black [genus, genesis, genius] is a group exhibition in the Collins Gallery at the Multnomah County Central Library. BCC: BrownHall, Portland’s only black creative collective, put together a ‘curated installation of Black creatives mobilizing visual art, printed materials, movement, and voice to honor and celebrate the intersection of interests, histories, and cultural production of our community.’ Including more than 20 local artists with national reputations, Black [genus, genesis, genius] is full of painting, drawing, poetry, photography, video, performance and more bursting out of the tasteful glass boxes they’re displayed in.

You can only really experience it all if you go there yourself, but here are a few works and their artists to entice you over to SW 10th and Yamhill and up those three grand flights of stairs or elevators.
