This Wednesday, in conjunction with the current exhibition 𝘒𝘢𝘳𝘺𝘯 𝘖𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘦𝘳: 𝘌𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘈𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘔𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘴, poet, writer, and dancer Harmony Holiday will present 𝘚𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘦 𝘚𝘶𝘪𝘵𝘦, a film and suite of poems and writings that draw from the legacy and contemporary reverberations of the 1985 MOVE Bombing in West Philadelphia. Through her work, Holiday creates an ode to joy—to Black laughter and smiling and spiraling, exploring gestures that counter decimating, oppressive acts and recover tenderness from ruin.
