Black Lives Matter

During this moment of profound and necessary protest, Night Gallery recognizes the call for deep reflection and a commitment to ongoing work.  As we search for strategies to effect change in the long term, we hear the call for immediate action, and are finding the best ways that we as a gallery and a community can contribute to the fight for racial justice and equality. We wanted to meet the moment with what we know best, bringing together our roster of celebrated artists for a group exhibition, with 100% of the gallery's share of proceeds benefiting organizations providing vital services at this time. The gallery selected Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, wanting to support this historic movement in our own city. Following input from our artists, a portion of proceeds will also benefit four other causes: the Los Angeles Black Worker Center, an organization devoted to closing the employment equity gap for Black workers; the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), a nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to people who have been illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons; Critical Resistance, a national grassroots organization building a movement to abolish the prison industrial complex; and the Los Angeles Action Bail Fund, providing rapid response aid to the protestors on the front lines of this fight.
