Tradition and Desire: Recent Video by Buseje Bailey and Donna James

5 March – 11 April, 1993

The sixth in our Front Alcove series presents recent video works by Buseje Bailey and Donna James, produced at the Centre for Art Tapes in Halifax and also at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Alberta, where both artists attended this past summer's workshop titled Race and the Body Politic. These four compelling videos explore the black female experience of tradition, beauty and desire, challenging the normative forces of white culture. Program time: 40 minutes.
