A roving reading room and discussion-based program organized by the multimedia platform Contemporary And (C&), responding to water as a literal and metaphorical framework for exploring African American and African diasporic experiences and cultures.

A roving reading room and discussion-based program organized by the multimedia platform Contemporary And (C&). This curated selection of seminal books, paired with a series of discussions, respond to water as a literal and metaphorical framework for exploring African American and African diasporic experiences and cultures. Through the selection of significant and at times unsettling texts, the installation highlights the ubiquitous traces of colonialism that extend throughout all facets of life.

Readers are encouraged to write reactions and responses on sticky notes to inspire and engage with future visitors, making it an ever-evolving installation.
