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.

On October 22, Nuotama Bodomo and Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich join in conversation with curators Tina Campt and Simone Leigh followed by a screening of selected works.
