OPENING RECEPTION:  I Found Myself in God, 40th Anniversary of Ntozake Shange's for Colored Girls

i found god in myself is a multimedia and multigallery exhibition celebrating the 40th anniversary of Ntozake Shange’s groundbreaking choreopoem, for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf.
Since its debut performance in 1974 just outside Berkeley, California, at a bar named the Bacchanal, Shange’s work has captivated, provoked, inspired, and transformed audiences all over the world. On display at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture are 20 specially commissioned pieces in honor of the individual poems and archival material that traces the journey of Shange’s text from that bar in California to its critically acclaimed run on Broadway.
The multigallery exhibition extends beyond the walls of the Schomburg to include additional noncommissioned artworks on display at two satellite locations, The Sol Studio and La Maison d’Art. These multimedia works portray women at the life stages of youth, adulthood, and late adulthood. Thereby each work gives tangible life-form to Shange’s words and women’s contemporary experiences with issues such as class, body image, gender identity, immigration, politics, war, love, sexuality, racial identity, sisterhood, and ultimately self-love.
i found god in myself is curated and organized by, Souleo of Souleo Enterprises, LLC.
