A visual tribute to Black Fathers & Positive Black Male Role Models

About

Thenublack and the forFATHERS project present MORE THAN XY - an exhibition that will celebrate the role of Fathers and positive role models in the Black community. The organisers of MORE THAN XY are mounting this show to increase the awareness of the fathers who are active parents in their children's lives and to provide exposure for the artists expressing their views of fatherhood through visuals. The show is their way to challenge the often imbalanced portrayal of black men being absent fathers and negative role models. This exhibition celebrates not only the role of Black Fathers but also to highlight positive black male role models who play an integral part in the lives of young people growing up. While realizing the importance of the individual voice, More Than XY will also encourage visitors to the exhbition to not only to view the works submitted by the Artists, but to be a part of the exhibition themselves by asking them to bring photographs of their fathers/positive role models to be placed on a message wall where they will also be able to write messages to and about their fathers.
