For two years, photographer-dancer-writer Intisar Abioto has traveled on a personal journey and dream project to photograph the deep, broad, infinite, and incalculable presence of people of African descent around the world. Across eighteen cities, seven countries, and three continents she’s traveled to weave a portrait of Black ubiquity through the photographic image. This installation, with portraits from across the US, Europe, and South Africa, represents the first leg of her continuing dream work.
It will also include an installation of Abioto’s “Rehearsal at Portland Art Museum: In Response to Fujikasa Satoko’s Flow #1” by filmmaker Roland Dahwen Wu. The installation runs from Feb 3-25th. Please join us for the opening reception and public release of “The Black.”
