About this show

With Harlem as its core, Finding Harlem Dawn is an exploration of intrigue, misfortune and love in a night's journey. Textured in lyrical poetry, this modern day Shakespearean type story explores parallels from the past and present through dance and experimental jazz music. Finding Harlem centers on four artists struggling to find love in their different yet interchangeable experiences. Artist Jill Knox presents her collection, Nigra Sum, Sucka!, an exploration of what being black has meant for her, inspired by the works of other inspirational African American artists, political figures and free thinkers. Merging pop art with black history, Jill has created a body of work that gives voice to, and speaks for, others who share her unique African American experience.
