Slowness: a conversation between Tina Campt, Saidiya Hartman, Simone Leigh, and Okwui Okpokwasili
Friday, April 24, 10am - Saturday, April 25 9:59am WATCH HERE
This conversation was scheduled to stream on March 26, a week after we made the difficult decision to cancel Platform programming. Due to an overwhelming volume of registrants and unfamiliar technologies, we experienced severe technical difficulties. Luckily, earlier that same day, Danspace Project recorded what was to be part one of the conversation between these incredible scholars, writers, and artists. The conversation is a reimagining of the live public conversation between Tina and Okwui originally scheduled for the last day of the Platform.We are so happy to share this recording with you!
