LOVE|FORTÈ's Memory Withholdings is an ethnological and experiential study of memory held in the bodies and practices of African descendants in North America. This curation stems from a study of "Acts of 'Wommanness'; Birthing, Bridging, and Conjuring"- A forum of art, as an expression of what it means to be a woman yesterday, today and tomorrow, and an account and preservation of women's experiences.
Filmmaker Tamu Favorite, installation artist Kimberly Mayhorn, and choreographer Paloma McGregor will share work along side each other during the Memory Withholdings curated evening. Through their performances, studies of 'wommanness' will be accessed and made tangible to audiences through performance; capsules of collective storytelling made manifest through visual, dance, and mixed media offerings.
