Video excerpt from “The New Migration,” presented by The Studio Museum and staged on the streets Harlem. Abigail DeVille speaks about the significance of her on-the-street procession of musicians, dancers, marching bands, and community members of all ages donning her wearable sculptures.
Meet at The Sculpture Center, 1834 E 123 St, Cleveland
Free; no registration required. There will be free parking at Circle Health Services, 12201 Euclid Ave, Cleveland.
As part of her exhibition The Dream Keeper, Abigail DeVille will lead participants in a Dream Variations processional that will pay homage to lesser known Black individuals buried in Lakeview cemetery while incorporating what it means to be Black in America. Join us for a procession on foot beginning at The Sculpture Center into the neighboring Lakeview Cemetery and ending at the cemetery’s Wade Chapel. Live musicians playing sounds of the universe and dancers will perform and blend the passage from the past to present experience and the future.
This event is part of the closing activities for the final weekend of FRONT International Triennial Oh Gods of Dust and Rainbows.
