Be Black Baby: a House Party Presents

  • Location:
    Recess Activities, Inc., 41 Grand Street, New York, New York, 10013

This fourth installment of Be Black Baby, entitled "Edouard Glissant: Inhabit His Name" and curated by Madeleine Hunt-Erlich and Simone Leigh, will track the collapse of contemporary space and follow the individual through the entanglements of language and locale. Taking Glissant's seminal text The Poetics of Relation as a point of departure, artists and thinkers will venture into the many mutations of multilingualism that is Creolisation. The exhibition will feature work by Becca Albee, Vanessa Agard-Jones, Firelei Baez, Kelly Josephs, Kaiama Glover, Hanna Herbertson and Blackgold Dancers, Devin KKenny, Legacy Russel, and more. This playful yet rigorous intellectual undertaking evolves into a dance party.
