Mission Black Satellite: Artists launch new project


A report from Trinidad’s Newsday.

Mission Black Satellite, a project that aims to leverage mediated reality, social media and public art to connect black artists and poets from the Caribbean and the US in dialogue across space and time will be launched tomorrow at East Yard, Prince Street, Arima.

Led by American visual artist and community organiser Christopher Paul Jordan and Trinidadian photographer, designer and curator twin artists Prabu and Parmanan Singh, the launch will feature live performances from Trinidadian and American storytellers and poets, as well as the unveiling of a new mural by Jordan, recipient of the 2017 Neddy Artists Award for painting, the Jon Imber Painting Fellowship, the GTCF Foundation of Art Award, the James W Ray Venture Project Award, and the most recent summer commission for Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park.

The launch serves as a link to the call-and-response exhibitions #COLORED2017 curated by Jordan and #NEGRO2018, curated by James. They will be joined by writer, poet, storyteller, performer and educator from Oakland, California, Joyce Lee.

  1. ”How blessedyou are” !!!How do you bless yourself by watching over the ruthless things that arehappening around where you are saved — It’s not just about praying, buttreating others fairly in future to feel more comfortable without exclusion eventhose who look unloved, may perhaps be well proved! It can take time to grasp,but with a humble heart, it is just compassion for you to truly feel sparedbecause happiness is likely to be uncovered as it is always everywhere throughanyone; Inreality, the rudimentary Sin is to insult someone else intentionally to satisfypersonal moods, smugness or parameters. In the meantime, no society can goforward without challenge ! It is as with faith: ‘’Above and beyond what didyou do in the name of the Holy-Creator to be sure that He is at your side?”Hum! Inall consequence, try to work impartially to diverge any subterfuge, do not waitfor a tragedy or state of emergency just to act as a human being to considerand shelter or hug the disinherited… Letthe tears flow through an Ave-Maria or Amazing-Grace to praise the Messiah bytreating others as well as possible, to feel good about yourself with theboundary or to serve humanity as the master has chosen us to fulfill his works. Happy Holidays & Happy New Year 2018Wholly to all readers who appreciate the untitled !!! Versaint
