Here I Am Exhibit
Hosted by JAYU
Curator: Lateefa Farah
This year, JAYU has hosted and provided a platform for young and upcoming Black artists in Toronto to showcase their creativity, message and artistic abilities. Ten special youth, coming from different backgrounds have created and produced artwork, ranging from poetry, music, photography and collaging that highlights this year's exhibition theme around the beauty in Blackness. So often we are met with negative perception of Blackness, nor do we rarely see it being glorified. We asked these youth to take charge and create their own narrative of what Blackness is to them, and what they would love to see in their media outlets, in relation to what we see today.
