As part of the exhibition, Be/Come, Emily Brodrick and Kate Holcomb Hale are pleased to share the FPAC gallery with Imani McFarlane the night of June 12th for Fort Point Night. Imani will be presenting Harvesting the Divine Feminine: an intimate exploration of sacred movement charged by raw textiles and dance to honor the divinity of traditional African spirituality.
Harvesting the Divine Feminine will address the questions: What does it mean to be a feminine black woman? What does her strength look like? How does she stand? Walk? When she is happy, what does that look like for herself and her community? When she is challenged, how does she overcome those adversities to provide for herself, and her community? Who gets to be feminine, and what power lies in the balance of the divine feminine/masculine?
Through movement, WE will tell OUR story!
In addition to Imani’s amazing performance Kate, Emily and Imani invite the public and FPAC community to gather, to document and be in the gallery alongside the artists and performers. Everyone is invited to bring their own medium of choice: photography, writing, drawing, textiles, dance, meditation, etc. to this festive evening that we anticipate will be a rich exchange.
