Body In River, Head Across Sky + Omi Toki Samantha Blake Goodman, founder of MAPS, will be presenting her work “Body in River, Head Across Sky”. The work will be performed by Christopher Bordenave of No)One. Art house and will be accompanied by a screening of “Omi Toki – Water is Worthy of Praise” a film by Nery Madrid. The film is a collaborative work that honors life and female ancestry.
Blake Goodman’s collaboration offers an exploration of the body as a vehicle through which corporal heritage is preserved, particularly that of the Afrolatino diaspora. The artist’s collaboration brings the body in movement to the table as one of the many platforms for the narratives of deficiency that constitute the lines of obsessive economic nostalgia, or Naftalgia, this exhibit traces.
MAPS ( Movement Arts Performance Space) is a project founded by Samantha Blake Goodman dedicated to cultivating the contemporary and traditional arts of the Afro-Latinx and Caribbean diaspora in Los Angeles.
