The Black Embodiments Studio
The Black Embodiments Studio is an arts writing incubator and public programming initiative dedicated to building discourse around contemporary black art.
We began in Seattle, WA in 2017with the goal of cultivating rich, complex discourse around contemporary Black art and artists. Through our Arts Writing Incubator we provide people a structure of support to develop and workshop their own writing on contemporary black art. They get the opportunity to publish in the annual BES journal, A Year in Black Art, and they gain tools to publish in regional and national arts writing outlets.
Throughout the year we invite Black artists, curators, and writers to be in conversation with one another, and to explore their practice in conversation with Arts Writing Incubator participants.
We’re continually experimenting with creating even more direct methods of supporting black artists and arts writers in the age of the pandemic. We’ve focused on creative alliances meant to build sustainable peer-support networks, commissioning new work from artists and writers, and developing ethical public programming practices that do not exploit their labor.
In the coming year, we’ll be expanding to provide residential residencies and we’ll be enhancing our reach within Seattle and far beyond it.
