Join the Thacher Gallery and Global Feminist Forum for the opening performance and reception for Visions of the Past, Islands of the Future: New work by Rivka Valérie Louissaint.

These multimedia artworks investigate the stories of Louissaint’s homeland of Haiti and its island neighbor, Cuba, to reveal their roles in the inception of African Diaspora in the American continent and as sources for visions of possible futures for the descendants of Africans brought to the Americas long ago.

The opening celebration will include a multidisciplinary performance by the artist.
