With photos by Intisar Abioto, this exhibit examines the lived history of Black place through images of Black Portlanders in situ – in their homes, at work, creativity, and worship, and in places of architectural, cultural, and historical significance to the city’s African American community. Recently featured in The New York Times, Abioto helped document the places of historic significance to Portland’s Black community, a project recently accepted into the National Register of Historic Places.
Black Exterior, Black Interiors is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council, the Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, and the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition.
