an anthology of artists’ films and installations

Avant-Noir Volume 3

Avant-Noir is an irregular film programme curated by Greg de Cuir Jr that surveys recent work by African and African diaspora film and video artists, alongside those engaging with African cultures including Marcel Odenbach‘s Foundering and You Can’t Swim, 2011 (Edition N°14).

It is rare that we see Black bodies on screens at film festivals and exhibitions, perhaps even rarer when Black artists create those images.

Avant-Noir takes this state of affairs into account and offers unique visions of the international Black experience, while celebrating the presence of artists often excluded from elite institutions and dominant discourse on cinema and the visual arts.
