We practice and revere Ancient Wisdom, Mythology, Liberation, History, Future, Metaphysics, Sacred Math, Prophecy, Science, Trippy, Music, Gods, Art. Anything that one could use as a tool to survive yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


The Triptych: Wangechi Mutu (by afropunkmovement)

Afro-punk pictures presents The Triptych (Dir. Terrance Nance, Dir. of Photography Shawn Peters, Co Dir. Barron Claiborne), in association with Weeksville Heritage Center.

The Triptych is a unique and profound documentary series profiling some of the most outspoken visual artists of our time. It highlights the work of artists Sanford Biggers, Wangechi Mutu, and Barron Claiborne.

Produced by Afro-punk pictures, the documentary is itself a work of art, featuring three intimate 20-minute conversations with three bold and culturally resonant voices in art. Each monologue is a reflection of their life experience, letting the viewer discover how their observations have shaped the art they create.

The first in the series features Sanford Biggers, Wengechi Mutu and Barron Claiborne — contemporaries, luminaries and friends. Spanning the artistic gamut from interdisciplinary to photography and performance, their keen reflections on the world are at once startling and insightful.

Afro-punk is dedicated to supporting and disseminating the work of visual artists that are prevalent in our society.
