On Friday, December 7, in conjunction with our fall exhibition Cotton: The Soft Dangerous Beauty of the Past, AAMP Salon returns with When I See Cotton, I See Red, an evening of short film, performance, and poetry co-curated by Philadelphia’s own Ursula Rucker.
Building upon the exhibition themes of spirituality, the lasting effects of chattel slavery, and our tangled relationship with cotton in the U.S., AAMP presents bridge/refrain by filmmaker Roni Nicole Henderson, Cotton by performance artist Monstah Black, along with performances by sound artist Hprizm. The evening also features Philly’s own award-winning poet Ursula Rucker, as the evening’s curator and host.
Doors open at 6 pm with an open gallery hour, and the program begins at 7 pm. Following the performance and screening, the artists will sit down for a discussion and Q&A. Limited tickets for this event will be available. Don't wait, grab your tickets today!
