Afro-Punk The Tryptych

I had the pleasure of being invited to a screening and artist talk of the documentary series The Triptych, at the Fashion Institute of Technology, featuring CNN contributor and Image activist Michael Angela Davis, and world renowned Kenyan artist Wangechi Mutu. The short documentary highlights artist Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu, and Barron Claiborne. 

The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time. Produced by Afro-punk pictures, the documentary is itself a work of art, featuring three intimate 20-minute conversations with three bold and culturally resonant voices in art. Each monologue is a reflection of their life experience; letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create.

It's the first in a series which gives visual artist a platform to spread their vision. "As a purveyor of the Black experience, Afro-punk is dedicated to supporting and disseminating the work of visual artists that are prevalent in our society"-Afro Punk 

Here is a quick sample of their work, and a trailer for the docu-series.
