Paradise is defined as the ideal place or state. However, the envisionment of paradise varies according to the viewer who is influenced by their own unique experiences, interests, and spirituality. The collaboration between imnotArt
and The African NFT Community
aims to portray Black women’s perspective & visualization of what Paradise
means to them.
In celebration of women’s history month, this exhibition aims to empower black women artists and bring attention to gender inequality in the NFT space. In both the NFT & Art Market, statistics reveal the overwhelming majority of top-selling artists are men. Furthermore, within the small percentage of profiting women artists, the presence of Black women is even more compact. This exhibition’s objective is to bring Black women’s perspective to the forefront to be viewed & honored by the world.
This exhibition is presented by Aku
