      The Black Power Station
      Arts Beyond the Streets

      Exhibit dates: Tuesday, February 4 — Sunday, March 1


      A collaboration of art, music, and dance between members of the Black Power Station in Makunda South Africa and members of McGuffey Art Center.

      McGuffey Art Center invites you to participate in an artistic collaboration connecting two communities more than 8,000 miles apart. Arts Beyond the Streets grew from long standing relationships between artists in Charlottesville, Virginia and Makhanda, South Africa. In a celebration of arts and inclusiveness, several artist-activists will be traveling from Makhanda, South Africa to collaborate with Charlottesville artists and cultural groups.

      Xolile (‘X’) Madinda and Andiswa (‘Bliss’) Rabeshu from The Black Power Station in Makhanda will collaborate with Lillie Williams of Chihamba and other Charlottesville artists on a series of events during the month of February: free art activities, workshops, and dialogues welcome to all community residents.

      Arts Beyond the Streets’ purpose is to foster collaboration and build solidarity between artists and art centers that are deeply embedded in their own respective communities, and to help them build programming to reach underrepresented community members. Although they are more than 8,000 miles apart, both Charlottesville and Makhanda have racialized histories that systematically disadvantaged persons of color. Arts Beyond the Streets promotes art programming that is accessible to all, a form of communication and collective action.  These events celebrate culture, promote arts programming in both Charlottesville and Makhanda, and increase the connectivity between the two communities. We strive to create a sustainable model program that enriches both Charlottesville and Makhanda through consistent exchanges of artists and activists.
