From the Africa Atlanta web site:
With live music by the band Moon Medicine, multimedia and performance artist Sanford Biggers presents a montage of his three-part film suite Shuffle, Shake and Shatter as part of the Africa Atlanta 2014 celebration. The film follows the Brazilian Ricardo as he navigates German society and the story continues to Sao Paulo and then to West Africa in this exploration of the formation and dissolution of identity.
An LA native working in NYC, Sanford Biggers creates artworks that integrate film, video, installation, sculpture, drawing, original music and performance. He intentionally complicates issues such as hip hop, Buddhism, politics, identity and art history in order to offer new perspectives and associations for established symbols. Through a multi-disciplinary formal process and a syncretic creative approach he makes works that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are conceptual.
Please note: This is a general admission event. Seating is on stage for this performance.
