Thursday Nov 2: TBA PRESENTS SEASON III with guest Benjamin Michel
Hosted by The Black Aesthetic (TBA). Film screening and conversation with writer/director Benjamin Michel.
The Black Aesthetic is a creative organization, whose mission is to curate and assemble both a collective and distinct understanding of Black visual culture. By working with artists, writers, filmmakers, and designers. We cultivate work that asks our audience to consider their relationship to Black art. Based in Oakland, we are invested in developing a community who will participate and engage with our mission.
The theme for this season is “TBA”, meaning 'to be announced', 'to be assessed', and 'to be actualized'. In an interview for Film Quarterly, Michael Gillespie says, “I’m interested in the rendering of blackness or how black visual and expressive culture stages race not just as impermeable fact, but as multidimensional and multidiscursive.”
