OPENING TOMORROW: Ragga NYC @ Mercer Union 📣📣📣 For the summer of 2018, @mercerunion is handing over its space and resources to the Ragga NYC collective, a vibrant and growing network of Queer Caribbean artists and allies. Over the next three months, the collective and gallery will be showcasing projects from 10 collective members: @mpclarke, @martine.tv, Oreka James, Aaron Nathaniel Jones, @taulewis, @nice_woo_nice_woo_nice_woo, @lilboosieplaycousin, @afrofuturist, Christopher Udemezue, and @syrusmarcus. The collective’s work is vast and wide-ranging, and much of it traces the connections between past traditions and diaspora to the present moment. Throughout the summer there will be readings, workshops, film screenings and dinners to work through some of these themes and concepts, in addition to the work on display in the space. 🔸️🔷️🔶️🔷️🔸️ @ragganyc’s Mercer Union residency starts tomorrow night with a reception at 7 PM, and runs until August 11. Admission is free and all are welcome.
