This Thursday, Afropunk in conjunction with Weeksville Heritage Center, launches its documentary series Triptych, which is a series of three (3) 20 pieces that highlight the life and work of three incredible visual artists. Two of them, Wangechi Mutu and Sanford Biggers ,are alums of the 2011 Festival of the New Black Imagination. The third is photographer Barron Claiborne. All three of these artists are pretty much killing the game in their respective areas.
The series was co-directed by Terrence Nance, whose film An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, was a 2012 Sundance selection, and Claiborne. Playwright and WBAI host Esther Armah will moderate a Q&A after the screenings, and Angelo Moore will host the afterparty.
