Black Lunch TableEdit

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) began as a collaboration between artists Jina Valentine and Heather Hart and intends to fill holes in the documentation of contemporary art history. In its 12 year existence, the BLT has taken a variety of forms relating to this iteration, the form of nomadic Wikipedia edit-a-thons. BLT’s aim is the production of discursive sites (at literal and metaphorical lunch tables), wherein cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue on topics directly affecting our communities. They endeavor to create spaces, online and off, mirroring the activity and creativity present in sites where Blackness and Art are performed.
