The Black Artist Fund is an initiative giving money directly to Black artists to combat systemic inequity in art.


The Black Lives Matter movement, and the ongoing nationwide protests, are shining a bright spotlight on systemic injustices against Black people in the United States.

Modern and contemporary art has long dealt with questions of the institution, yet art museums and galleries still disenfranchise ethnic and socioeconomic minorities. The cold hard truth is that these institutions use Black artists to fulfill a diversity quota. One Black artist and they are done. Black artists are passed for gallery representation, group shows, art fairs, biennials, etc. Turning the tables on systematic oppression requires resources and representation.

10011 – magazine is officially launching the Black Artist Fund on June 6th, 2020. The Fund will collect funds directly from engaged art lovers and raise additional funds through art sales. The funds will be disbursed to individual Black artists and Black art collectives / organizations in the United States.

Funds raised: $36,209
