A highly influential maker of performance, writing, and visual art and recipient of the National Medal of Arts, Ralph Lemon works with the complexities of geography, history, memory, and the body. The New Yorker notes how “his way of describing his dances, with his mind on fire” can be as fascinating as the creations themselves. Lemon’s The Geography Trilogy is a profound, and worldwide, 10-year inquiry into the social gravities of art, race, and identity at the turn of the 21st century.
Our video screening features the complete Trilogy: Geography (1997), Tree (2000), and Come Home Charley Patton (2004), with commentary and readings by Lemon and close collaborators.
