Join Heimark artists-in-residence, ChE and Jaymes Jorsling for a discussion about their works and creative processes over the course of 2016-2017 Black Spatial Relics Project. In their respective works, Tripping Over Roots (Jaymes Jorsling) and OPINION | The Other America: A #DIGNITYINPROCESS Art Action (ChE), these artists are each working and dreaming through rigorous questions of trans-historical solidarity between the lives and struggles of enslaved Africans in the United States and the contemporary freedom struggles of Black people in the United States. Come and learn more about the creative processes, collaborations and research that inspired them to develop these works!
Facilitated by Black Spatial Relics Curator, Arielle Julia Brown.
Black Spatial Relics is presented by the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice (CSSJ) in partnership with Rites and Reason Theatre with support from The John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage. The Black Spatial Relics residency is made possible with generous program support from the 2017 Heimark Artist in Residency Program.
