Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 6-10 PM, on the occasion of the opening event for AFRO.
The model and performer Lumane Luma, better known simply as LUMA, will be spontaneously creating a performance (approximately 30-40 minutes) to accompany an editioned work by Mickalene Thomas. Luma’s guiding principle in much of her work is to depict the modern Afriican-American woman as she behaves naturally in ordinary activities yet, in this case, within a backdrop of some visual excess. Before and following her performance, Luma will be simply attending the event as a guest.
At 8 PM, move to the sounds of DJ Kevin Galaxy. Galaxy is deeply involved in the contemporary art world both as an artist and an educator. Plus his turntable skills are fly.
