The Meatpacking District BID and ARTNOIR are gearing up to present From A Place, Of A Place, a neighborhood-wide, five-part festival that will use art and performance to celebrate Black art, culture and commerce. The series will kick off on August 12 and run through the end of October. The five-part series will launch with a large-scale sculpture titled WHENEVER/WHEREVER WE CAN by artist Olalekan Jeyifous, curated by Oshun Layne; gallery exhibition The Meeting Point curated by Danny Baez of ARTNOIR and REGULARNORMAL; followed by a multi-sensory live performance series Visions In Motion directed by Dario Calmese, and a curated Guide to the Meatpacking District that will shine a light on Black voices and businesses in the neighborhood.
