Baldwin’s Nigger R E L O A D E D: Workshops/Performances/Film Screenings/Art Installations/DJs

INIVA, London, United Kingdom
22 Aug 2014

In the 1969 film Baldwin’s Nigger (dir. Horace Ové), author/activist James Baldwin and comedian Dick Gregory discuss the black experience in the United States relating it to the Afro-Caribbean experience in Britain.

On Friday 22 August 2014 Iniva is host to Baldwin’s Nigger R E L O A D E D, a project created in partnership with artist Barby Asante and the London based collective of thinkers and artists ‘sorryyoufeeluncomfortable’.

Artist and curator Asante’s practice focuses on enabling dialogues across cultures. Together with Iniva they provide a space to invite young thinkers to reinterpret, re-perform and reflect, on the subjects of race and identity raised in Baldwin’s film.

The project sees the artists and curators cross-generational and individual practices coming together to engage and re-contextualize the film through multidisciplinary artistic approaches.

Through artworks, interventions, performances, DJ sets, workshops and film screenings, the collective responds to the themes (race/identity/legacy) discussed in the film by setting up contemporary conversations through creative formats.

Expect a lively day of fresh and engaging critical thinking as the ‘sorryyoufeeluncomfortable’ young collective takeover Iniva’s home at Rivington Place for the day.

Friday 22 August, 3 – 11 pm
