VW Sunday Sessions invites Amir George and Erin Christovale of Black Radical Imagination to present a special screening program featuring short films by Jamilah SaburSuné WoodsVashti Harrison, and Ephraim Asili. Black Radical Imagination is a touring program of visual shorts that delve into the worlds of new media, video art, and experimental narrative, growing out of a series of discussions about the boundaries and limitations that people of color have historically faced in the realm of the cinematic. Focusing on new stories within the Diaspora, each artist contributes their own vision of postmodern society through the state of contemporary black culture. An artistic movement as well as a school of thought, Black Radical Imagination uses cinema to explore the aesthetics of afrofuturism, afrosurrealism, and the magnificent.

Following the screening will be a conversation with Ephraim Asili, Amir George and Erin Christovale.

VW Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator, with Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant, Taja Cheek, Curatorial Assistant, and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer, and Lucy Lie, Production Coordinator.
