The Black Radical Imagination

The Black Radical Imagination

“A carefully selected body of work responding to what it means to be black in the 21st Century.” —CCH Pounder

Jack H. Skirball Series

Presented following a recent U.S. tour and an installation in Basel, Switzerland, The Black Radical Imagination is a visually rich collection of shorts—from video art to experimental and narrative films—inspired by a futurist aesthetic that explores issues of identity in our postmodern society. The program features Golden Chain (2013) by Adebukola Bodunrin and Ezra Clayton Daniels; Afronauts (2013) by Cristina De Middel; Mae’s Journal (2013) by Amir George; Quiescence Interrupted... Adumbrate (2013) by Anansi Knowbody; Split Ends, I Feel Wonderful (2012) by CalArts alumnus Akosua Adoma Owusu; Reifying Desire 2 (2012) by Jacolby Satterwhite; and The Changing Same (1998) by Cauleen Smith, whose experimental work was presented at REDCAT last spring. In addition, Pumzi (2009) by Wanuri Kahiu is screened as part of the evening.
