A Part of Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom
Lunchtime tour of the art and informal discussion with Visionary Aponte artists José Bedia, Nina Angela Mercer, Marielle Plaisir, and Jean-Marcel St. Jacques, as well as co-curators Ada Ferrer and Édouard Duval-Carrié with Laurent Dubois. This event is a part of Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom, a nine-week art exhibit and accompanying series of conversations, screenings, performances, residencies, and workshops at Duke University organized by the Power Plant Gallery and the Forum for Scholars and Publics. The exhibit is curated by Édouard Duval-Carrié and Ada Ferrer and is based on a digital humanities project called Digital Aponte. Find more information online at aponte.dukefsp.org.
Free and open to the public. Light lunch served. Organized by the Power Plant Gallery and the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
“These conversations might take their cue from Aponte’s story, or the artwork, but they are not limited by either. And certainly they are no less important. Our program of events strives to create many access points, and that means considering how these works might influence our physical bodies, via dance, or walking around the gallery, or via conversations about Black freedom, or films on Afrofuturism.” —Caitlin Margaret Kelly, Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom, Forum Online
