Date Change -- Bulawayo to Bennington: Diasporic Rendition, Blackness as Liberty | Exhibition Opening
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | In the Bulawayo to Bennington: Diasporic Rendition, Blackness as Liberty exhibition, the artist aims to orient a visual representation of the African Diaspora within the medium of the image. This project spans 4 years of work made across continents and explores the diverse and multi-faceted nature of what it means to be a diasporan, how representation is inherently linked to identity, and whether or not any kind of return to ancestry, to home, or to the self is possible once lost.
