a/wake in the water, a film, video, and new media exhibition, will be on view at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts from Thursday, August 14th, to Sunday, November 9th, 2014. From the MoCADA website, the exhibition utilizes “found footage, staged reenactments, and performative paralysis to expose the systematic neglect and lingering repercussions Black communities face in the aftermath of disaster.” Additional narratives “explore impending dystopic and apocalyptic futures to further analyze the state of environmental justice as it functions within the Diaspora.”
