Films by Kevin Jerome Everson and Edgar Arceneaux

In Conversation

  • Edgar Arceneaux is an artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. He was the director of the Watts House Project from 1999-2012.

  • Michael Gillespie signs his book Film Blackness: American Cinema and the Idea of Black Film after the screening.

This program showcases the film and video work of Everson and Edgar Arceneaux. Each is an artist with a distinct practice that demonstrates a multivalent concern for modalities of art, race, black visual and expressive culture, performance, and historiography. They each produce richly textured work that considers the rigorous capacity of art to suspend, refabulate, and disrupt the writing of history and the vast range of meanings attributed to blackness.
