Building Dialogs, Question Bridge: Black Males

May 1, 2016
3:00pm  -  3:50pm
Gallery of California History — Level 2

This conversation, facilitated by artist Chris Johnson, will look at his project Question Bridge: Black Males to discuss issues of identity, agency, and visibility. How can creative work build bridges between groups of people and bring about awareness of critical issues in social justice? How can a project provide a safe space for participants to share? What does it mean to build connections in digital space?

Question Bridge: Black Males is a transmedia art project that seeks to represent and redefine Black male identity in America by facilitating a dialogue between a critical mass of Black men from diverse and contending backgrounds; and offering a platform for them to define themselves.  Multiple videos of Black men asking and answering questions played on multiple screens are fabricated to emulate a live dialogue among an array of standing figures.

 

 Conversation series events are limited to 30 participants on a first-come, first serve basis.
