DEAR ALL,
I'M PLEASED TO SHARE SOME OF MY CURRENT PROJECTS FOR SUMMER 2018

I couldn't be more excited to announce the German premiere of my performance Into the Dark at Maxim Gorki Theatre!
 

Into the Dark takes as its starting point a scene from H.C. Andersen’s play The Mulatto (1840) in which one protagonist, Paléme, attempts to convince his acquaintance Horatio to participate in an imminent revolt against the plantocracy of colonial Martinique. Tensions rise as the two men negotiate their privileges within the colonial system and stakes in overturning it.

Through a poetic, fragmented series of scenes and soundscapes Into the Dark unfolds an expansive legacy of Black empowerment. Here we encounter, along with H.C. Andersen’s characters, Queen Mary, James Baldwin, Sun Ra, founders of the Black Lives Matter movement and many others.


The performance will take place on June 7th and 8th as part of BE.BOP 2018: Coalitions Facing White Innocence curated by Alanna Lockward that, as always, features an amazing group of artists, activists and scholars working on undoing the asymmetries of knowledge produced by the colonial project.

Book your tickets now!


What an honor to have my work Atlantic (Endless Row) included in the exhibition HÖHENRAUSCH - The Other Shore in Linz, Austria.

Along with more than 40 other artistic contributions curated by Elisabeth Schweeger, Martin Sturm and Genoveva Rückert, Atlantic (Endless Row) contributes to a dialogue around water's multiple and conflicting meanings in our contemporary moment as well as historically.
 


I'm very happy to be joining Arts & Globalisation for an exciting Manifesta 12 collateral event in Piazza Magione in Palermo, Sicily. Curated by Rikke Jørgensen and Valentina Gioia Levy, this extensive public program titled Art & Connectography - Remapping the Global World through Art will focus on migration, geopolitics and mobility in contemporary art.

As well as showing a video projection of I Am Queen Mary by La Vaughn Belle and myself, I will be in conversation with Rikke Jørgensen and Nanna Debois Buhl on the topic Travelling Species - Coloniality, Hybridity and the Anthropocene at 20:45, 17 June 2018.
 

Last year I was honored to have my video work Black Bullets included in the thematic section Perpetual Horizons of the exhibition Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago curated by Tatiana Flores at the Museum of Latin American Art in LA. This wonderful show has now traveled to the Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University where it will be on view until 23 September 2018.

Don't miss it if you are in New York!


I am collaborating with Nigerian novelist Jude Dibia in the science fiction project To the east and to the west, two planets appeared on the horizon organized by Signal Center for Contemporary Art

The project explores the contradictions of The Øresund Bridge that connects Denmark and Sweden - as both a symbolic tie between these two nations and a violent barrier for those seeking refuge during what came to be labeled as the refugee crisis.

Subscribe to Signal's newsletter at 
info@signalsignal.org to receive information about the project's progression, including the culminating event in Malmö on 20 June 2018.

WARM REGARDS


Jeannette
