The Remix: Hip Hop X Fashion – As hip hop music was taking off in the late 80s and 90s, associated fashion trends and styles were also making their voice heard. And both were largely dominated by men. But as the voices of Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliot, and Lil’ Kim grew louder, so too did the influence of their female designers and stylists working behind the scenes.

The Two Faces of a Bamileke Woman – filmmaker Rosine Mbakam left Cameroon at 27 to live in Belgium. Seven years later—having studied film and married a European—she returns, accompanied by her son.

Boston-based Artist Lani Asuncion Will Perform Her Piece BLOODLESS Prior to NARCISSISTER!

Before the film, local artist Lani Asuncion will perform her piece BLOODLESS on the stage of the Remis Auditorium. Like Narcissister, Asuncion frequently explores her heritage and intersectional identity in her work. BLOODLESS is about what lead to the annexation of the nation of Hawai’i in 1893, when Queen Lili’uokalani stepped down from power to allow the American sugar planters under Sanford Ballard Dole  (currently known as Dole Food Company) backed by the U.S. military to establish a new provincial government with Dole as president. Asuncion’s father was born and raised on one of these implemented sugar plantations, and this connection has influenced her life and work.
