AV's BAI and Fat Ham

BAI's (Carl Karni-Bain) figures bend the narrative of gender mythology to include the often excluded. Their representation is not make-believe, but true contemporary and desired freedoms as expressed in Fat Ham by James IJames and directed by Monteze Freeland at T2.

Fat Ham, the 2022 Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama is a "deliciously funny send-up of Shakespeare’s Hamlet...When the ghost of Juicy’s father demands that Juicy avenge his murder, fatal intent doesn't come easy to this sensitive, self-aware, young Black man in search of his own happiness and liberation."

#NWAJuneteenth 2021 Exhibition

#NWAJuneteenth is a virtual gallery of video exhibitions by local and regional Black artists who continue to work for freedom in America. Several of them have answered the question, “what does Juneteenth mean to me?” It is great to hear what they know, and we can find familiarity in their experiences. Their answers are much like that of other American Black families.

Importantly, the artwork attests to the role of artists in building strength in community and culture.
