Black spiritual traditions are expansive and multitudinous. They contain ancestral histories that span continents and emerge from syncretic Muslim, Christian, Ifa, and other African belief systems. This group of artists, curators, and scholars will consider sound and image’s relationship to Afro-diasporic practices of religiosity being attuned to how spiritual traditions are rendered through the moving image. Such representations include Black bodies in collective worship, exaltation, the chorus, the breath, the embodiment of the Holy Spirit, line dance, and dance circles, among other modes of spirituality, ecstasy, and transcendence.
