Arts + Culture


Nov 19, 2021 - Feb 13, 2022

InVisible, an art exhibition centered on mental health from the Black perspective, features painting, sculpture, performance, multimedia installations, and poetry by 12 artists. The work highlights artists' personal battles with mental health and explores vices, remedies, mental health practices, therapy, medications, coping mechanisms, and triggers.

“Given the topics covered in this exhibition, some of the work may be raw, jarring, and push the viewers outside of their comfort zone,” said artist and Collective founder Natiq Jalil. “This is done intentionally so that the artists can shine light on their chosen illnesses and amplify and uplift those who may also struggle with these illnesses.”

Artists also present works inspired by situations that cause Black people to feel invisible, such as casual racism, microaggressions, narrative changes, and false diversity movements.
