Radical Storytelling: A Beginning without End

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"Blackness is a nomadic aesthetic. You're constantly moving without a sense of security or space." - artist Kehinde Wiley. In this experiential multimedia workshop we will explore movement, memory, and space through radical storytelling. With a short film and an interactive puzzle, we will challenge notions of linear time and chronological in order to connect to an intuitive power intrinsic to the Black experience, and its potential for movement, improvisation, and creativity.
