In Conversation: Ijeoma Iloputaife + Philana Payton

4334 Degnan Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90008
May 14, 7 PM - 8:30 PM — ends Sep 14, 2019
Filmmaker, artist, and poet Ijeoma Iloputaife and filmmaker and film scholar Philana Payton will come together on May 14 to discuss their practices and the common themes between them. Central to both artists' work is understanding and representing the role of Black women in the face of institutionalized racism, black-on-black violence, colonialism, and normalized misogyny in many forms. Iloputaife and Payton will address the Black female experience in their work as well as the intergenerational similarities and differences they've experienced and expressed through their art as well as the progress, or lack thereof, made in the betterment of the plight of women today.

This program is organized on the occasion of "Time is Running Out of Time: Experimental Film and Video from the L.A. Rebellion and Today," which is on view at Art + Practice through September 14, 2019 and is presented in conjunction with "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983" on view at The Broad through September 1, 2019.
