G/D THYSELF: Spirit Strategy On Raising Free Black Children
As an extension of their short film AS TOLD TO G/D THYSELF, The Ummah Chroma collective provides a sacred space at Het Nieuwe Instituut entitled G/D THYSELF: Spirit Strategy On Raising Free Black Children. The sacred space invites visitors to explore themes of meta-physical transcendence, spirituality, and self-expression.
This exhibition considers the role of a fashion garment as a socio-political carrier. The hoodie is a staple of contemporary dress, hyped as a trend and a must-have item; but elsewhere it is also a topic of moral panic, banned by certain institutions and dissected by the media as an emblem of inequality, crime or deviancy.Curated by writer and curator Lou Stoppard.
