The Forum highlights Pan-African collective Chimurenga, recipient of the 2018–2020 Jane Lombard Prize for Art and Social Justice who will install its Pan African Space Station (PASS) at The New School. PASS lands at The New School from October 23–25 for a three-day broadcast that explores the participation of African American artists, activists, and intellectuals in FESTAC '77, the 2nd World Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture held in January-February 1977 in Lagos Nigeria. On Friday, October 25, Chimurenga presents a rare performance of composer and trombonist Craig Harris’ suite titled FESTAC '77 at The New School’s Tishman Auditorium.
The Forum also includes Global Voices, conversations on art and politics with Jane Lombard Fellows hailing from four continents: Liz Johnson Artur, Tiffany Chung, Dar Yusuf Nasri Jacir for Art and Research, Naine Terena de Jesus, and Jasmeen Patheja on Saturday, October 26.
Youth Bold is used throughout the identity. In the program booklet, it’s paired with Neue Helvetica for text.
