Isinmi, a performance facilitated by Lola Ayisha Ogbara

06/04/22, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Notice: St. Louis City officials recommend that residents follow CDC guidance for COVID-19 safety. Current CDC guidance states that people should avoid large events and gatherings when possible, and use masks and social distancing when gathering with those outside your household. Please use a virtual meeting option if you can. See the CDC website for guidance on large and small gatherings.

Community Event

Admission: Free.

Ogbara will present her performance project, Isinmi, which considers rest, stillness, and ceremony. While her film on view, The Perfect Servant, commemorates the invisible labor history of Black women, the performance considers Black femmes at rest, both its historic deprivation and its present necessity. Through improvisation with objects in the gallery, the performance will move through exercises that center lounging and restoration.
