BLACK/BROWN, by Tya Alisa Anthony

We the people vocalize two words, Black and Brown. Hoping all connect to the words in their own way. Seeing the movement of our lips and hearing the annunciation. Honoring time and space for black and brown bodies. Speaking love and light into the words. Taking the time to help a friend. Random acts of kindness with a tool that we all have access to. Our voice. Sharing just two words and 20 seconds.

    otra tierra / / other land, by Lares Feliciano

    otra tierra is a moving mural inspired by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism. What begins as a familiar landscape slowly transforms into a wild, waking dream. Influenced by Kahlo’s magical realism, otra tierra explores identity as it relates to land and time, acknowledging the contradictions we must embrace in order to feel whole.

    Untitled: For Frida

    DJ set by Kenneth "Santo Sunra" Anthony with music compiled as an interpretation of what sounds may have inspired Frida Kahlo to create. The ability to process what we are seeing and finding ways to cope (such as music and movement) as a means to heal is important. For many indigenous cultures, the drum is a way to connect to our ancestors and our past while still driving the energy of current movements.
