Artist Talk with Amanda L. Edwards and Nyugen Smith
On Zoom, Friday, October 23 at 6:00 PM ETJoin us for an artist talk with Amanda L. Edwards and Nyugen Smith!
Smith and Edwards have collaborating on a video piece over the past few months — debuting on the side of Maxon Mills in early December — as one of three artist teams sponsored by an NEA Art Works grant for community-engaged public art projects. The talk will cover how their collaborative process has developed since their residencies in July 2018, how they’ve adapted their practices for large-scale projection work, and will maybe (maybe!) include a sneak preview of the piece itself. There'll be plenty of time for audience questions, too.

From the folks at The Lab:
In a critical time for social justice, we need our spirits lifted more than ever. And for people of color living in this country, we need to see ourselves in every seat possible. theLAB by Artists of Color presents “It’s BIGGER Than Me", an experimental short film on the black experience during the pandemic. This self-produced, collaborative work involves all artists of color including actors, dancers, and vocalists. View the trailer here! "It's BIGGER Than Me" explores the complexities of our present moment and will present virtually October 15th, 18th, 21st, 22nd, and 25th.
