Discussion with Tsedaye Makonnen, Alisha Wormsley, and Li Harris, in partnership with Washington Project for the Arts (WPA)

Alisha Wormsley's multimedia work, Children of NAN: Mothership, is an archive of video footage, photos, objects, philosophies, myths, rituals, and performances that Wormsley has been compiling for over a decade. Part of this work, a single-channel video is screened at the Gallery. (Alisha Wormsley, 2019)

Cry of the Third Eye: The Last Resort is the final part of a three act opera film — with live vocals and theremin — that considers gentrification, intergenerational legacy, loss, and the space of dreams. (Li Harris, 2019) (Total running time approximately 75 minutes)

This event is a component of the exhibition Black Women and the Archive: Space, Moving Image Memory, guest curated by Tsedaye Makonnen at the WPA, on view through June.
