A Dialogue In Black and White

Art Exhibition and Dinner Discussions

City Gallery, 34 Prioleau Street, Charleston, SC

May 18-June 10th Daily, Free

Multimedia works. 64 diverse visual artists partnered by theme as duos: one person of color and one white have created separate works that reflect the issues of our time including Disparity, Community, First Amendment, Mental Health Awareness, Black Lives Matter, Rape Culture, Body Image, Spirituality, Homelessness, Environmental Racism and other emotionally-charged or challenging topics.


“This is an exhibition that pointedly aims to facilitate meaningful conversations among viewers,” explained the show’s curator, Torreah “Cookie” Washington. “The works are tremendously thought-provoking and eye opening,” she said. “I believe A Dialogue in Black and White will get people talking and connecting, and I hope it will move us closer to mutual understanding.”


   To further inspire the meeting of minds, three ticketed-event dinners and a brunch will take place at the exhibit. Members of the public are invited to break bread together and engage in discourse that connects, challenges and enlightens. In order to assure the most engaging dialogue, diners will be seated at random, not necessarily with the guests with which they came.

Weekly Dinner Dates: 5/24/18, 5/31/18, 6/7/18, and Brunch 6/10/18.
