Summary: "After the End" brings together four artists, all of whom have been connected to UCSD in recent years, to share works that emerge and encounter new, old, and imagined modes of creative practice. These four artists share a wide-range of intersecting and meandering connections resulting in works made in video, experimental documentary, movement, and mirror-light that will be presented in an online format for the show hosted by gallery@calit2.
alexis hithe is a ﬁlmmaker and interdisciplinary media artist. Her work orbits trans-Atlantic Black and queer spiritualities, culture, and theory. She feeds an aesthetic concerned with fragmentation and multiplicity and non-linear time, hoping to conjure up futures beyond the colonial-carceral state. Her current ﬁxations include shadows, ghosts and reﬂections; she is focusing her MFA experiments and research on video and light projection.
Erick Msumanje is a ﬁlmmaker and video artist pursuing a Ph.D. in the ﬁlm and digital media program at UC Santa Cruz. His work blends ﬁction and non-ﬁction that focus on minimal gestures of the body, ritual, landscape, and sound. The work often creates a visual and sonic ﬁeld that explores divergent viewpoints, tempo, glitches, and stillness.
Jamilah Sabur (b. 1987, St. Andrew Parish, Jamaica) lives and works in Miami. Metaphysics, geology, and memory are recurrent themes in Sabur's work, with a distinct and poetic interest in language. Sabur’s recent solo and group exhibitions include Observations: Selected Works by Jamilah Sabur, University of Maryland Art Gallery (2020); The Willfulness of Objects, The Bass, Miami (2020); Time Share, Performa, New York (2020); Open Justice, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada (2020); The Last Supper, Faena Art, Miami Beach (2019); Memory Palace, Crisp-Ellert Art Museum, St. Augustine (2019) ; The Other Side of Now, Pérez Art Museum, Miami (2019); Parallels and Peripheries, Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit (2019); Stream Gradient, Nina Johnson Gallery, Miami (2019); Un chemin escarpé / A steep path, The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2019). Sabur earned a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore (2009), and an MFA from the University of California, San Diego (2014). Her work is included in the permanent collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art, Pérez Art Museum Miami, and The Bass Museum of Art.
dana washington-queen (they/them) is a research-driven writer and lens-based artist exploring autobiographical and cultural ﬁelds to examine race, blackness, place, memory and myth-making. In working across video, experimental cinema, digital and ﬁlm photography, their research and practice brings production strategies into dialogue with black feminist thought, antiracist methodologies, and media and cultural studies.
