UPCOMING CONVERSATION

“Motions to Unfurl,” performance & conversation with Ica Sadagat

Join us on Thursday, June 30th at 6pm ET for a performance and conversation with artist Naima Green and poet and essayist Ica Sadagat as a part of Naima’s solo exhibition at Baxter St, A Sequence for Squeezing.

Featuring new and recent photographs, as well as a recent video work, the exhibition continues Green’s practice of collaborating with her community to create intimate portraits and record personal scenes of play, exploration, and pleasure. Focusing on the experiences of Black, Brown, and Queer individuals, the exhibition builds on and expands the themes of Green’s previous work, exploring water as a site for pleasure and freedom, the sensuality of enjoying food, and the rituals of intimacy. A Sequence for Squeezing will be on view at Baxter St from June 15 through July 23, 2022.
