UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Shuffle and Shake

November 6, 2014 - December 27, 2014

Shuffle and Shake form the first two parts of Sanford Bigger’s Odyssean trilogy about the formation and dissolution of identity. The work features Ricardo Camillo -- a Brazilian-born, Germany-based choreographer, stuntman, clown and DJ -- as he walks from the favelas (or shantytowns) of Brazil, to the ocean before finally transforming into an androgynous silver-skinned figure. Though the final imagery is straight out of Afrofuturism, recalling the specific costuming and aesthetics of P-Funk, it is remains extraordinarily human at the same time, referencing the soul searching of Greek mythology.

Projected onto North Façade of Everson Museum of Art Building, Dusk – 11.00pm, Thursday–Sunday

Meet the Artist Sanford Biggers in person at the Everson on November 11 at 6.30pm. Reception follows on the plaza.

Shuffle and Shake are part of Celestial Navigation: A Year Into the Afro Future, a year-long program of exhibitions and events at Urban Video Project and partner organizations that takes afrofuturism as its point of departure.
