Families with children of all ages can tour Poetic and Political, exploring how clothes and textiles shape individual and community identities. After the tour, make sun prints (camera-less photographs) inspired by the work of German-Ghanaian artist Zohra Opoku.
Curator Talk and Dance Performance
Join Kerry Oliver-Smith, Curator of Contemporary Art, in discussing Poetic and Political. The talk will highlight works by contemporary artists who address African American history through the visual language of today.
Following the talk at 4 p.m., Choreographer Alexandria Davis will perform, “Drauma: Exploring Trauma through Dance,” focused on the traumas of resilience. Through a fusion of dance aesthetics, including modern, ballet, hip-hop and African dance, she will explore the impact of poverty, classism, racism, domestic violence and abuse on individual lives. Discussion to follow.
