About the Curator

Joshua Love, hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a curator, communicator, and the founder of two significant art exhibitions: A Marvelous Black Boy Art Show and A Spectacular Black Girl Art Show. His initiatives aim to address the underrepresentation of Black artists in the art marketplace and provide a platform for them to showcase their talents and artistry.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Joshua Love embarked on this mission in 2019. Since then, he has successfully curated more than 150 exhibitions in over 30 different cities, featuring the works of over 3000 local Black artists. These exhibitions have collectively made a significant impact, generating over $5 million in artist sales, which is a testament to the talent and creativity of these artists.

In his own words, Joshua Love’s dream is to create spaces where Black artists not only have the opportunity to exhibit their art but also feel acknowledged, supported, and celebrated. His efforts represent a vital step towards a more inclusive and diverse art world, where artists from all backgrounds have the chance to shine and thrive.
