Exhibition Black South


#October 05.2019
For Black History Month, October 5th 2019, I’ll be curating “Black South”, an exhibition around the black southern culture with a focus on the city of New Orleans. Rsvp: link.dice.fm/wEa5lZJ4TY

[Black South] is a sensory experience of nostalgia and delight aiming to counteract the images we often see of black bodies in our current political climate. A celebration of blackness but also music highlighting decades of Memphis phonk, trap music, southern soul, chopped & screwed melo beats from Houston, Nola bounce without forgetting the high-life bass of the Miami sound.
