Who are we?
Onyx22 (or the O-22 Collective) is a group of artists and makers that are committed to building and uplifting the moving image community here in the Twin Cities through film screenings, the utilization of non traditional spaces, the creation of video centered exhibitions, and fostering an overall sense of literacy around video as an art form. We are focused primarily on supporting the work of emerging experimental and non-conventional black artists that would often lack representation in traditional environments.
All chosen artists will have free entry (+1) to subsequent shows, O-22 merch, and a 1on1 artist interview
