Black Aesthetics: "Imagine Otherwise" curated by Malcolm-X Betts
ABOUT THIS WORK:
Ashon Crawley engages a powerful concept in his work that he calls, “the Otherwise”: a way of thinking and acting outside dominant, violent ways of being. The Otherwise is a “concept of irreducible possibility,” Crawley writes in his essay “Otherwise, Ferguson”: it signifies our capacity “to create change, to be something else, to explore, to imagine, to live freely, fully, vibrantly.”
Doors Open at 7:30
Performance begins at 8 PM
IMAGINE OTHERWISE is an invitation to Black Artists to explore the possibilities of artistic practice. Inspired by the concept of “otherwise,” possibility curator Malcolm-X Betts asked choreographer, dancer and installation artist Arien Wilkerson/Tnmot Aztro, their collaborator Chloe Newton, and sound Artist Kwami Winfield: How do we act towards the outside violence and violent ways in the United States?
