Artists’ Television Access is a San Francisco-based, artist-run, non-profit organization that cultivates and promotes culturally-aware, underground media and experimental art. We provide an accessible screening venue and gallery for the presentation of programmed and guest-curated screenings, exhibitions, performances, workshops and events. We believe in fostering a supportive community for the exhibition of innovative art and the exchange of non-conformist ideas.
The notion of the Black Radical Imagination stemmed from a series of discussions around the boundaries and limitations that are historically given to people of color. Specifically, in the film industry these restrictions are often digested and kept to propel a vicious cycle of negative identification. Black Radical Imagination invokes a futurist aesthetic where artists identify themselves and reclaim their own unique stories.
It features Golden Chain by Adebukola Bodunrin & Ezra Claytan Daniels (2013), Afronauts by Cristina De Middel (2013), Mae’s Journal by Amir George (2013), Quiescence Interrupted… Adumbrate by Anasi Knowbody (2013), Split Ends, I Feel Wonderful by Akosua Adoma Owusu (2012), Reifying Desire 2 by Jacolby Satterwhite (2012), and Changing Same by Cauleen Smith (2001)
The screening will include a roundabout dialogue with the audience members and featured filmmakers to further ponder and process the stories that are being presented.
