For the very first time, the long durational live performance
We’re Magic. We’re Real (These Walls), 2021 is coming to the US. 
This ongoing body of work continues the use of hair as a vital element, highlighting the significance of hair as a symbol of history and identity in communities of African origin. 

The intervention, curated by Selene Wendt, is part of the EADJ ( Engine for Art, Democracy & Justice) program, founded by Dr. Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons.

It is a great pleasure to announce that the performance will take place tomorrow November 16 in the legendary Cravath Hall at the historic Fisk University, among the extraordinary murals by Aaron Douglas
The project would not be possible without the beautiful engagement from the local community. It has been a moving and powerful experience to establish a braiding circle within this significant building.


Vanderbilt University announces artist interventions of the Engine for Art, Democracy & Justice fall program.
Through these programs, the university intends to bring together thinkers from creative disciplines whose work enables us to consider how we may combat the social inequalities of our day and envision a more socially equitable future for everybody by helping to reframe and rewrite the past.

Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora.
The 1990s–Today 


Curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates
MCA, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago
05. 11. 2022 →  10. 04. 2023
The extensive Caribbean group show 'Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, the 1990s–Today' opens on Saturday at the MCA.
The exhibition envisions a new approach to contemporary art in the Caribbean diaspora, foregrounding forms that reveal new modes of thinking about identity and place.
Forecast Form argues that the Caribbean is constituted by diaspora and movement, featuring artists whose work challenges traditional assumptions of Caribbean culture and its representation. Forecast Form is a rethinking of contemporary art in the Caribbean. Forecast Form positions the region as a place where the past, the present, and the future meet—where continuous exchanges forecast what is to come while remaining grounded in the histories that shape the present.
I am delighted that my video Black Bullets is included in this show curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates.

A GATEWAY TO POSSIBLE WORLDS


Curated by Alexandra Müller
Centre Pompidou-Metz

Two weeks ago I had the absolute honor to be part of the opening of Gateway To Possible Worlds at Pompidou Metz, which contains more than 200 works dating from the 1960s until today, across 2300 square meters. I am super excited that Black Bullets is also included in this show.

Gateway To Possible Worlds at Pompidou Metz is built on current demands for 21st-century utopias to spark debate and inspiration. Within its exceptional scenography, you may encounter many works exploring dogmas of the current world shining a light on the connections between fiction and reality. 

Fiction creates a place where anything is possible, the works exhibited do not convey a future but portray a parallel world: one which is built on our imagination, vision and wishes of humanity, in which science fiction becomes the possible rather than the imaginable. The exhibition is conceived by many artists that explore fiction as a study of reality in an eager and overflowing way.

Centre Pompidou-Metz,

Dates:
