A dual gallery and collaboration with Filmmaker: Ebbe Bassey; Curators: Beatrice Lebreton and Ibou Ndoye; and Production Manager: Belynda M’bay ​ Artists, Poets, Dancers and Musicians are invited to present work in response to the short film, Siri Oko Fo (Mending Fences) by Ebbe Bassey. ​ In "Echoes From Afar: A Time to Keep & A Time to Let Go”, artists reveal the importance of the spiritual power of Africa by retaining elements of the traditional world and yet creating a new contemporary vision. Through visual art, film, photography, dance, and spoken word, artists proclaim a cultural heritage while they explore, celebrate, play, question, challenge or protest diverse issues. The dual exhibition, spreading in two inter-connected spaces, illustrates the importance of past histories and conveys the vital significance of African traditions in the diaspora. Cultural traditions are very powerful and can be positive (promoting social cohesion and unity) or negative (corroding the physical and psychological health of individuals). "A Time to Keep” commemorates positive customs and tolerant behaviors while "A Time to Let Go” illustrates the attempt to alter or eliminate harmful traditions.
