Organized by Gabrielle Civil, Black Motion Pictures is a series of Zoom interviews with radical Black creatives about race, performance, and representation conducted between June 2–14, 2020. Spanning a broad range of topics—Black punk music, heritage sites, re-enactments, queer ancestors— the series continues with artist and designer Kelly Walters.
Who are you today and what do you do? Can you think of a performance–black or otherwise—whatever that means—that has meant a lot to you? How is black performance marked or archived? How does black performance relate to time (to historicity or ephemerality)? What is a black performance still? How does black performance matter? What is a black motion picture?
The series continues with the following films:
Nov. 13- Jhenelle Brown: film curator and programmer
Dec. 16- Sola Bamis: performance artist
