We are excited to announce that Leila Weefur, in collaboration with Aggregate Space Gallery, is a 2018 grant recipient from the Creative Work Fund! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰

The Creative Work Fund awards grants to artists who collaborate with nonprofit organizations to create new works that strengthen communities in Northern California through intellectual inquiry.

Weefur will produce, โ€œBetween Beauty and Horror,โ€ an ambitious video installation that is a part of Weefurโ€™s ongoing research questioning how best to illustrate the nuances of Blackness and the physical negotiations/interactions that are present in that experience through tactility and immersive video. Learn more about the project from the Creative Work Fund website HERE.
