I don't know if I should call it his (Terence Nance's) *next* film, or his follow-up to his feature film debut, An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, but I'll say that if you live in New York City, you should be all over this, tomorrow night, at the Brooklyn Museum.

The Triptych

I don't know if I should call it his (Terence Nance's) *next* film, or his follow-up to his feature film debut, An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, but I'll say that if you live in New York City, you should be all over this, tomorrow night, at the Brooklyn Museum.

The gist:

On MAY 24th @ BROOKLYN MUSEUM, Afro-punk pictures presents The Triptych (Dir. Terence Nance, Dir. of Photography Shawn Peters, Co Dir. Barron Claiborne), in association with Weeksville Heritage Center.

What is The Triptych?

Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time. It highlights the work of artists Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu, and Barron Claiborne. 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. The first in the series features Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu and Barron Claiborne -- contemporaries, luminaries and friends. Spanning the artistic gamut from interdisciplinary to photography and performance, their keen reflections on the world are at once startling and insightful.

Like I said... if you're in NYC tomorrow night, you should be all over this! I'll be there for sure.

In the 3 clips below, check out previews of each artist profile in the documentary series, directed by Terence Nance, and if you're at all interested, you should purchase your tickets now by clicking HERE. Cost: $12 each. Space is limited so bust a move.

Watch all 3 previews/trailers below: first for Wangechi Mutu's profile, followed by Sanford Biggers and finally Barron Claiborne.
