Always and Somewhere: Visions in Blackness

Thursday, March 7, 6–9pm
SOMArts, 934 Brannan Street

Forever, A Moment: Black Meditations on Time and Space (FAM) is a multidisciplinary community art exhibition that explores Black Identity and the way it experiences, interprets, distorts, and ultimately, transforms time and space. Curated by Yetunde J. Olagbaju and Kevin Bernard Moultrie Daye, Forever, A Moment provides an innovative departure from the standard “white cube” that has dominated museums and galleries for over a century. Their curatorial vision actualizes viable alternatives to traditional modalities of display and engagement while building multiple pathways toward Black pasts, presents, and futures.

By bringing together Black artists who are investigating ritual, color, place, and history, FAM radically reshapes the gallery itself into a new type of space, one unburdened by societal expectations of Blackness. One that holds the promise of reimagining and effecting change in the spaces outside and within the gallery.

Always and Somewhere: Visions in Blackness, Thursday, March 7, 6–9pm,  is an evening of film screenings and talks curated by Christian Johnson, Yetunde J. Olagbaju, Kevin Bernard Moultrie Daye. This event builds and describes a black canon of cinema and thought that extends from the past into the present.
