Description

The cult writer, theorist and visual artist probes at the frames, images and ideas that shape our desires and constitute art "It is a joy to meet you." The sentiment is directed at the musician Fever Ray, but each of the experimental essays that make up writer and visual artist Hannah Black's A Nuclear Accident are also meetings with the works and ideas of fellow artists: Sandra Mujinga, Nicole Eisenman, Sondra Perry, Aleesa Cohene, Erro, Barbara Hammer, Leilah Weinraub, Ryan Coogler. Examining the images, colors, frames and ideas that infuse their works--and, in some cases, by hearing directly from the artists--Black probes at experiences of Blackness, queerness, digital life, of watching and being seen, and of living in tumultuous political times. "White light from the sun, a nuclear accident, encounters a layer of ozone and spreads itself indifferently," she reflects--the source of our seeing.
