Angie Pittman Invocation Proclamation Manifesto By Scott Shaw 106

No Longer Showing.

Sequined Kisses and Vazlean is a diptych that grapples with ways to give love, receive love, be cool, be resilient, achieve survival, and daydream. Sequined Kisses... is an exploration of interiority, and its relationship to compression, love and joy within the context of historical trauma against Black folk. ...VazLean centers “cool” as an African Diasporic concept through greasiness, lubrication, and James Brown cape choreography. Together, these two pieces are a journey towards what Donnell Alexander calls “finding the essential soul while being essentially lost.”

This performance is presented as part of The Racial Imaginary Institute: On Whiteness. For more information about the exhibition and other programs please see our website
