Lates: Pitch Black- Online Festival

National Museum Cardiff and Artes Mundi are excited to announce Lates: PITCH BLACK, an online festival of events that will celebrate Blackness as boundless and infinite. The series includes multi-artform commissions that interrogate the impact that the British Empire and culture has had on Black people and their history whilst exploring new ways to dream collectively.

Lates: PITCH BLACK presents events that will be running every Thursday evening throughout May 2021 and will include bold new work created by our PITCH BLACK artists; Gabin Kongolo, June Campbell-Davies, Omikemi and Yvonne Connikie – commissioned by National Museum Cardiff and Artes Mundi. Alongside these commissions, Lates: PITCH BLACK will present film screenings, DJ sets, exclusive Black History tours of the National Museum of Wales Collections and extras from the Artes Mundi 9 exhibition.

Sometimes we’re invisible is a performance-based inquiry into the presence of Black people in Art from National Museum Cardiff’s historic art collection.

NDAKO (Home) is a cine poem that reveals the poetic nature and experience of coming to Wales from Congo as refugees.

20 May – Omikemi
Dreaming Bodies is a collaboratively produced audio-visual artwork. The work has been developed out of a care focused somatic inquiry for Black, LGBTQIA+ disabled folx.

27 May – Yvonne Connikie
A time for New Dreams takes its name from a book by Ben Okri, a collection of essays on how the world is and how it could be. The work is an experimental and intergenerational manifestation of the dreams of the Windrush generation in Wales.
