North Star: Conversations on Boundlessness

Brooklyn native and visual artist Kambui Olujimi invites you to a two-day symposium inciting provocations at the boundaries of science and art. Over the last four years, Olujimi has worked on a transmedia project entitled North Star that recontextualizes sites of blackness and Black bodies within history, science, and contemporary art. North Star subverts notions of a Black body constructed from the "inescapable" gravity of oppression and instead explores the innate state of Black Rhapsody and asks; “What does the Black body look like in zero gravity?” This two-day symposium is an artist convening that will create discourse intersecting with concepts and theories of the North Star Project. The symposium includes panel discussions with leading artists, scientists, and scholars; performances by poets, musicians, and dancers; and the world premiere screening of Olujimi's North Star film. This gathering will function as a site of liberatory exploration, concentrated curiosity, serious play and other paradoxes of creative inquiry.
