Black Radical Imagination Screening
19:00 on 2 December 2017
The Assembly Hall, The Art School
The notion of the Black Radical Imagination stemmed from a series of discussions around the boundaries and limitations that are historically given to people of colour in the realm of the cinematic.
Beginning in 2013, Black Radical Imagination is an internationally touring programme of visual shorts that delve into the worlds of new media, video art and experimental narrative. Focusing on new stories within the diaspora, each artist contributes their own vision of post-modern society through the state of current black culture. An artistic movement and school of thought, Black Radical Imagination focusses on the aesthetics of afrofuturism, afrosurrealism and the magnificent through the context of cinema.
The films featured explore concepts of existence through themes of ritual, migration and mythology to ocntinue the conversation towards shifting the way in which Black Identity is defined on-screen and how these stories affect our ever-changing global culture.
A discussion will take place following the screening, between Amir George and Nicole Yip (LUX Scotland).
Featuring films directed by:
Ezra Claytan Daniels and Adebukola Bodunrin
Presented in partnership with LUX Scotland, with support from Film Hub Scotland (part of the BFI’s Film Audience Network) and Creative Scotland.
This is a public event as part of Glasgow School of Art’s ‘Race, Rights and Sovereignty’ series, in partnership with the Glasgow School of Art Students’ Association.
