This program showcases the film and video work of Everson and Edgar Arceneaux. Each is an artist with a distinct practice that demonstrates a multivalent concern for modalities of art, race, black visual and expressive culture, performance, and historiography. They each produce richly textured work that considers the rigorous capacity of art to suspend, refabulate, and disrupt the writing of history and the vast range of meanings attributed to blackness.
