All Artists Have a Seat at the Table Exhibition
February 9 - February 20
In celebration of Black History Month, PAFF and IKEA have collaborated for the second year to create the All Artists Have a Seat at the Table exhibition.
The full exhibition will be on display for the public Feb. 10-20 during the PAFF ArtFest at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
In partnership with IKEA, world-renown Black artists from PAFF created fine art with IKEA furniture as a part of the All Artists Have a Seat at the Table exhibition. The goal was to establish, preserve and present “imaginative stories” –– and to keep the expressions of Black art vibrant and alive. The artists were asked to create a visual representation of the rich history and culture that has shaped the Pan African Film & Arts Festival for the last 30 years using IKEA’s IVAR chairs and their INGO table.
In-store displays of the IVAR chairs transformed by the artists involved in the All Artists Have a Seat at the Table exhibition will take place at each Southern California IKEA store. Those stores include Carson, Arcadia, West Covina, Burbank, Long Beach, and Costa Mesa through Feb. 8.
The All Artists Have a Seat at the Table exhibition is curated by acclaimed Ghanaian contemporary artist PAFF ArtFest director Allohn
The PAFF ArtFEST is sponsored in part by grants from The Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
