Oral-history archive project with the Black Lunch Table

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between Jina Valentine and Heather Hart, first staged in 2005 at the artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Organised around literal and metaphorical lunch tables, BLT seeks to democratise the writing of contemporary art history by animating discourse amongst the people living it.

'We are augmenting the dominant narratives of contemporary art with the testimonies of living, working artists of the African Diaspora. Our primary aim is the production of discursive sites, wherein cultural producers of colour engage in critical dialogue with one another on topics directly affecting our global community. Providing a space to discuss critical issues strengthens the bonds within our nebulous community and validates shared concerns through exchange.' BLT
