Combahee Experimental: Black Women’s Experimental Filmmaking - The Black Surreal

The Program in Visual Arts presents a series of conversations and film screenings that celebrate the work of Black women filmmakers and their unique cinematic contributions to contemporary visual culture. Co-curated by award-winning multi-media artist Simone Leigh and Black feminist theorist of visual culture and contemporary art Tina Campt, the series extends a collaboration begun with the 2018 Loophole of Retreat conference convened at the Guggenheim Museum as a commitment to using public programming platforms to highlight the creative, artistic, and intellectual labor of Black women.

Nuotama Bodomo and Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich in conversation with curators Tina Campt and Simone Leigh followed by a screening of selected works.

  • Hunt-Ehrlich, Spit on the Broom (2019) and Outfox the Grave (2020)
  • Bodomo, Afronauts (2014) and Boneshaker (2014)

The series is presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Visual Arts and Princeton University’s Department of Art and Archaeology with additional support through the John Sacret Young ’69 Lecture Series fund.
