Hypervisibilities has been developed in dialogue with Sondra Perry, and brings together the work and voices of activists, artists, cultural critics and public intellectuals to consider how art and activism are shaping one another as visual materials are recontextualized and recirculated at increasingly accelerated rates. Friday, October 6th, here at UnionDocs we will screen works by video artists and filmmakers who use found footage to show the manifold identities of Blackness as they are expanded and flattened in contemporary culture. This program was selected by Sondra Perry in collaboration with UnionDocs and Curator, Amanda Parmer of The Vera List Center.

 

Screened artists will include Tony Cokes (Black Celebration, 1988), Ja'Tovia Gary, Arthur Jafa, James T. Green, Sondra Perry, and Tony Ramos. A conversation with Perry, Gary, Green, and Amanda Parmer will follow.
