Black Doll Magic: The 41st Annual Black Doll Show
Virtual Experiences
December 11, 2021 – February 26, 2022
The William Grant Still Arts Center’s 41st Annual Black Doll Show, Black Doll Magic, is a virtual experiment for us as artists, collectors, and lovers of Black Dolls to prepare ourselves to come out into the world. In our second year of online exhibition, we asked our community to show us a before and after, influenced by social media #challege videos, to work in their own style with their doll of choice. The #BlackDollMagic videos show how we are reemerging into the world after difficulty and isolation. Using black dolls as a metaphor for our creative selves and force of faith, our community shows up with the most fascinating, personal and sometimes comical view of a path toward transformations.
…..
This year our exhibition’s theme takes on online viral video challenges. Black doll artists, collectors and fans are presenting before and after videos of them and their dolls. A playful introduction into our relationships with Black Dolls, the videos will premier at our opening reception on December 11, 2021, but live on Instagram @black_doll_magic
Each submission will be uploaded with information on the doll and the artist, collector or enthusiast.
…..
There’s still time to submit your video to be presented at the premier and online opening reception. Please upload videos by December 3, 2021 following our easy to follow instructions. Videos submitted after the due date will be uploaded to the page, but will not be presented in our feature premier. The videos are quick and easy and our staff is prepared to help or answer any questions you may have.
