Screening: Black Radical Imagination
For a second consecutive year, articule is pleased to collaborate with Black Radical Imagination by presenting the new iteration of their short film programme. Curators Erin Christovale (Los Angeles) and Amir George (Chicago) have selected four films that tackle issues present in lives within the Diaspora. Always addressing the boundaries and limitations that are historically given to people of colour in the realm of the cinematic, these shorts focus on aesthetics of afrofuturism and afrosurrealism through this context.
Artists: Adebukola Bodunrin, Ezra Claytan Daniels, Michele...

From this residency she created the game Unsettling Settlers of Catan, which aims to research...
