Throughout the world we are calling for justice. Since western contact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) have experienced systemic colonialism resulting in racism, loss of land, violence, and the severing of cultural ways of being. Here, in what is now known as Alaska, movements such as Black Lives Matter, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Just Transition, and Defend the Sacred are addressing these issues through education, visibility, policy change, and understanding. Throughout the month of August, APU Galleries will amplify the work of BIPOC individuals through a virtual exhibition. We invite all BIPOC artists, musicians, writers, and activists to submit work to the APU Gallery Curator, Melissa Shaginoff. We want to use our institutional privilege to lift the voices of BIPOC individuals in equity. Submissions can include images of two or three-dimensional works, a recording/vides of music or poetry, and social media educational content. We are expanding our perception of the “exhibit” while in times when we cannot gather. In addition to the virtual First Friday exhibit at APU Native Peoples Action and Native Movement will host a two-hour First Friday Zoom Event featuring a call to action from movement leaders, live music, and discussion with featured artists.
