Forged Ways: Films by Ephraim Asili
Saturday November 18, 2017
Artist in Attendance
Ephraim Asili is an African-American artist, filmmaker, D.J., radio host, and traveler. Inspired by his day-to-day wanderings, Asili creates art that situates itself as a series of meditations on everyday experience and media culture. Asili’s dynamic perspective is presented through audio-visual examinations of societal iconography, identity, geography, and architecture, resulting in an amalgam of pop, African-American and “moving image” culture that is filtered through an acute sense of rhythmic improvisation and compositional awareness.
Presented in collaboration with Squeaky Wheel Media Center
