When we speak of “the culture that cultivates an afrosensual aesthetic” do you know what we mean?
As we go into the new week, the cultivators on the Garden feel the need to share more of the culture of the Garden. For example, we will showcase several efforts in the world of entertainment. Lena Waithe, one of the creative geniuses of Dear White People (which we intend to feature later), shares an effort she worked on with Flavor Unit Productions called TWENTIES, an insightfully irreverent comedy about three black women in their twenties. One of the show’s producers is Queen Latifah.
We will also pay a wee bit of homage to some of the sagacious words of provocation as shared via Hip Hop. It’s a moment of remembrance, melancholy and vision… knowledge of the past to inspire the future…Sankofa. And we will take a moment to check out a Mother of George, the second film of photographer/filmmaker Andrew Dosunmu. A sumptuous film, “Mother of George is impressionistic, privileging the power of gesture to tell a story.” One word on that: excellent.
Chef and Caterer and Owner of Suppers Served, Kenyada Stalls will make an appearance to share with her cooking secrets when it comes to preparing a perfectly delicious salmon. Working with Silver Iris Entertainment to create their online web series Simple Servings, this is the first of their features in Pangea’s PGTV.
PrettyFire returns with her uniquely creative and provocative portrait sets. It’s called Ratchet Housewife and it is fun, artistic and disturbing in a most thought-provoking way. Don’t you dare miss out on it.
It’s models week in the Garden as well.
earthSista and model Ekah is a featured in captures of afrosensual pinup as only fashion and glamour photographer Nate Tyler can do. Also model Brittany Reaves works with up-and-coming Gregory Lopez Photography to create their own takes of a Nature Stroll. They create a bold and delightful set of captures.
The week kicks off, however, with an offline event in Atlanta. Tomorrow is Art Monday at the Apache Cafe and earthSistas YEME and KieraSati are the muses on stage. Below is a collection of images by vincent and WillowBeMedia of the earthSistas from recent shoots. We hope, if you are in Atlanta, you will join us to for the night.
