National Museum Cardiff and Artes Mundi are excited to announce Lates: PITCH BLACK, an online festival of events that will celebrate Blackness as boundless and infinite. The series includes multi-artform commissions that interrogate the impact that the British Empire and culture has had on Black people and their history whilst exploring new ways to dream collectively. 


Lates: PITCH BLACK presents:  

Omikemi: Dreaming Bodies

Dreaming Bodies is a collaboratively produced audio-visual artwork. The work has been developed out of a care focused somatic inquiry for Black, LGBTQIA+ disabled folx. The inquiry sessions engaged museum materials and embodied activities such as life drawing, body poetry and movement meditation practices to explore, the futures we wish to create and to speculate about practices that would make our lives more sustainable and joyful. It is an artwork that engages the ideas of the mystical-activism, auto-immunity and body supremacy in the pursuit of increased agency and exploring possibilities for care and communities.
