This event takes place from 6 to 7PM CST.

Join us for a live listening session of the new album “Rituals of Resilience”, executive produced by Orko Eloheim, Medium Zach and I Self Devine, with features from The Lioness, SoloStar, Tish Jones, Izell Pyramid, Muja Messiah, Greg Grease, I-BE and others.

Rituals of Resilience is an audio-visual experience, co-curated by the Twin Cities-based musician and community organizer Chaka Mkali (aka I Self Devine) and Gabriel Ritter, Mia’s Curator and Head of Contemporary Art. The experience creates dialog between works by Black visual artists from the United States, Africa, and the greater African Diaspora and new music created for the exhibition by Mkali and his collaborators. The accompanying album grew from in-depth research on the work of each artist, and approaches their individual visual practice as a means to access and articulate a collective Black consciousness that transcends time and space.
