We. The Culture: Works by the Eighteen Art Collective Opening Celebration
7:30-9:30 PM

Join Newfields for the opening of We. The Culture: Works by The Eighteen Art Collective with an evening of community, music, and celebration. 

 

Formed in the summer of 2020 after 18 Indianapolis-based Black artists were commissioned to paint the Indiana Avenue Black Lives Matter street mural and supported by GANGGANG, The Eighteen Art Collective was brought together by a shared moment of activism, but their artistic practices are diverse in concept, intent, and medium.  

 

Artworks in the exhibition address subjects as varied as religion and spirituality, queer identity, joy, hip-hop culture, materiality, art history, nature, and social justice. While the exhibition showcases the collective, its goal is to introduce the artists as individuals and creative professionals beyond their roles in the street mural, and to highlight the immense pool of artistic talent active in Indianapolis.
