Radical Edits: Reassessing Cultural Narratives
Sit in on an afternoon of screenings, performances, and discussions with five artists and writers whose work counters racist narratives and foregrounds a reassessment of our collective cultural memory. Radical Edits: Reassessing Cultural Narratives.
Taking Alexandra Bell’s public art project, Counternarratives, as a point of origin, the program features Bell, along with Sable Elyse Smith, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, D0UZE, and Devin N. Morris—founding editor of 3 Dot Zine—who will discuss how visual and written languages inform cultural perceptions. Through written text, video, installation, and performance, each of the participating artists seeks to negate language that perpetuates prejudices and to propose more equitable narratives.
Works from Alexandra Bell’s current public art series, Counternarratives, will be on view from November 9 through November 18 in the MoMA PS1 courtyard. Teenager With Promise, Annotated, (2017) and Olympic Threat explore how language can perpetuate racist narratives and highlights mainstream media’s latent bias.
Sunday, November 12, 3:00–
Tickets: $15 (MoMA Members $13)
