Join Light Work’s Urban Video Project for My Body Is Opaque, a program of special events featuring multimedia artist Steffani Jemison and  athlete Alexis Page.

Jemison and Page will present a movement workshop and discuss their collaborative creation of a lexicon of movement, which they explore both as a Black feminist research method, art making strategy, and as way of approaching the everyday and the at-hand with virtuosity.

These events will happen in conjunction with the opening of the Figure 8, a new video work by Jemison created in collaboration with Page and commissioned by Light Work for exhibition at Urban Video Project on the facade of the Everson Museum of Art. More info

Both events are live online, FREE & OPEN to the public.
