LOVE|FORTÈ’s Memory Withholdings is an ethnological and experiential study of memory held in the bodies and practices of African descendants in North America. This curation stems from a study of “Acts of ‘Wommanness’; Birthing, Bridging, and Conjuring”- A forum of art, as an expression of what it means to be a woman yesterday, today and tomorrow, and an account and preservation of women’s experiences.

Filmmaker Tamu Favorite, installation artist Kimberly Mayhorn, and choreographer Paloma McGregor will share their work along side each other during the Memory Withholdings curated evening. Through their performances, studies of ‘wommanness’ are accessed and made tangible to audiences through performance; capsules of collective storytelling made manifest through visual, dance, and mixed media offerings.

“Memory Withholdings started before our meeting, as intergenerational artists, and will continue beyond us, hopefully spurring new collaborations and collectives along the way. It is a kind of Prism Project, having many faces i.e. as installation, stage performance, or Kitchen Konversation. As we studied the footage from our evening at BAX last May we realized that this year we’d set our sights on a dramaturge, as we craft the work into Memory Withholdings: a saga of Performance Installations and Performative Acts. Through multimedia exhibition and physical installations with a focus on social change that connects and inspires people with powerful ideas and new ways of thinking that transform our lives and the world, this curated show seeks to fill the gaps and build bridges that advance the human right to equity worldwide.”
