Black Lives Matter demonstrations have erupted across the country since the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. Protesters from New York City to Los Angeles are calling for racial justice and pressuring local officials to to defund police departments following Floyd’s death in the hands of local authorities as well as Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery and countless Black victims. As massive crowds continue to march in solidarity, there has been overwhelming support for the Black community with people taking to social media to share lists of Black businesses to support across fashion, music and more categories.

In the art world, many institutions including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum were criticized for not reflecting on their stated commitments to antiracism in their programming and hiring practices during the #BlackoutTuesday social media campaign. The industry, as a predominantly white entity, must now grapple with the lack of Black and minority representation in institutional spaces.

For years, Black people have largely been excluded from the executive board and permanent collections of America’s most prestigious museums such as The Met, National Gallery, MoMA, and the Guggenheim. The Guggenheim itself did not have a full-time Black curator until 2019 when the museum hired Basquiat scholar and journalist, Chaédria LaBouvier.

To help elevate Black visibility, we compiled an ongoing list of over 90 Black-owned museums and galleries from around the world, below. Be sure to also check out Dazed’s global list of Black-owned/founded museums, art galleries and spaces to support.
