On February 25th at the Fashion Institute of Technology, AFROPUNK Pictures presents THE TRIPTYCH, in association with the Office of Educational Opportunity Programs. Following the screening, there will be an Artist Talk featuring CNN contributor and Image Activist, Michaela angela Davis, and world renowned Kenyan artist, Wangechi Mutu.
Artist Talk: “Free Style”
Artist Wangechi Mutu and Image Activist Michaela angela Davis will talk about the Born Free fashion project and how art and fashion can communicate and liberate.
The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time. Produced by AFROPUNK Pictures, the documentary is itself a work of art, featuring three intimate 20-minute conversations with three bold and culturally resonant voices in art. Each monologue is a reflection of their life experience, letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create.
The first in the series features Sanford Biggers, Barron Claiborne and Wangechi Mutu – contemporaries, luminaries and friends. Spanning the artistic gamut from interdisciplinary to photography and performance, their keen reflections on the world are at once startling and insightful.
Directed by Terence Nance, Co-Directed by Barron Claiborne & Photography Directed by Shawn Peters.
As a purveyor of the Black experience, AFROPUNK is dedicated to supporting and disseminating the work of visual artists that are prevalent in our society.
