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. IKEA, along with specifically chosen world-renowned Black artists.
The full exhibition will be on display for the public Feb. 10-20 during the PAFF ArtFest at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza (3650 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.).
IKEA will host meet-and-greets with the artists at their Southern California stores on Feb. 3.
In partnership with IKEA, world-renowned 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.
The All Artists Have a Seat at the Table exhibition is curated by acclaimed Ghanaian contemporary artist PAFF ArtFest director Allohn Agbenya.
