MVMTLS: Movement of Lone Stars | February 10 - March 24 | Opening Reception: Feb. 10 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | South Dallas Cultural Center
This multi-media exhibition centers on a film excavation of a Black collective memory with South Dallas starring as a supporting character. The film’s sonic landscape is shaped around interviews that took place in the quarantine lockdown of 2020, tracing the memories of various Dallas residents on the subject of their childhoods. Its use of collected archival footage, present-day photography, home videos and aged photographs creates a tapestry that travels from moment-to-moment in stark contrast to the environment in which these conversations took place. It is a candid peak at the power of collective memory – one that tracks the movement of these Lone Stars and yields a fragile truth and sacredness of the Black community.
