Here is a brief description:
Artist Installation Round 32: eco, xiang, echo: meditations on the african, andean & asian diasporas. These Artist Installations will be on exhibit from March 27, 2010 through June 20, 2010 and are free and open to the public.
Curated by artist William Cordova, this series of installations brings together a multigenerational group of artists from various backgrounds and geographic locations. Working in photography, performance, installation, drawing and sculpture, each artist presents work that addresses the often-overlooked connections between distinct cultures. These connections range from paralleling historical narratives to fantastical freedom dreamscapes. This project is a platform for a continued dialogue around the notions of collective consciousness in the Diasporas represented in this exhibition.
Participating Artists include:
Mendi and Keith Obadike
While we were there, there was a man playing music...I only got a snippet from my phone, but I felt it set a mood. While the music was playing my husband said, "I feel like we are in a movie." I say a Spike Lee film for sure...lol
