Ayé A. Aton: Space-Time Continuum presents a collection of over 200 slides, documenting Ayé A. Aton (b. 1940) murals, painted between 1963 and 1976 through image and sound, providing an intimate glimpse into the domestic lives of an African-American community on the cusp of cultural transformation.
Mendi + Keith Obadike: American Cypher is a site-specific suite of projects that respond to American stories about race and DNA by the intermedia artists Mendi and Keith Obadike (both b. 1973).
The tour will have something for everyone: adults, families and kids of all ages are welcome!
