Black Lives Matter Art Show Went To The Living Gallery Outpost

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog. The Living Gallery has a new space in New York's Lower East Side or East Village you can call it for real estate marketing purposes maybe. And Black Lives Matter Art Show went to The Living Gallery's new space, The Living Gallery Outpost this past week. And thanks again Nyssa for giving me the opportunity to get that Black Lives Matter artwork out of the closet again to continue those culture jams and events around this theme and time, as I haven't had the opportunity to do another one of those art shows since Black Lives Matter Art Show Went To The Living Gallery. And every picture tells a story, I think, about how this art show went as in those photos and videos that find themselves posted above. And thanks Paper Magazine for mentioning Black Lives Matter Art Show as THE 10 MUST-SEE ART SHOWS OPENING THIS WEEK, which was actually last week by now. And that Facebook event invite for this event read something like:

Black Lives Matter | Carla Cubit of Occupy Art

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the one day pop up Black Lives Matter Art Show features Carla Cubit's Black Lives Matter artwork and posters, accompanied by her photographs from Black Lives Matter protests throughout the NYC area.

Though in all honesty #WhoisUncleTom talkback cancelled their workshop at the last minute and that Black Lives Matter Band didn't really materialize. And much like The Living Gallery in Brooklyn, The Living Gallery Outpost are having community events seemingly every day and beyond. And if I must also mention in this blogger post, according to that Inaugural Space Fund announcement yesterday, Black Lives Matter Art Show is also looking forward to going to one of thisopenspace's spaces sometime later this year I guess, as one thing I think one needs to do those art shows is space. Thanks #thisopenspace.  And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street day one thousand or two thousand and something, I think.  And those protest for world revolution movements Occupy Wall Street and all things police brutality and beyond movements Black Lives Matter are still moving fast. We are the 99%. Have a great Occupy Art, Occupy Art NYC, Occupy Wall Street Worldwide day and more
