In honour of Black History Month, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is presenting a virtual conversation in collaboration with Nigra Iuventa, an organization that celebrates African and Afro-descendant cultures and history through visual and media arts.
Visual artist Mallory Lowe Mpoka and singer Veeby will join this panel discussion about territory and creation. They will address issues related to the diasporic experience, memory, and movement that have helped shape place, space and/or imagination. Following the example of Felwine Sarr, they will consider art that allows us “to inhabit the world’s infiniteness and its most subtle and highest dimensions,(1) ” or art that moves and transposes the spectator to another place without deploying artifices of commiseration.
