Nia's Daughters Movement Collective X E.R.A. Vintage
This project was the recipient of the Fresh Arts SpaceTaking Residency Grant.
Launching in July 2021, A Single Thread Weaves a Future is an exploration of time and sustainability drawing inspiration from accomplished and stylish Black women who revolutionized the Houston community and serve as a prototype for imagining a glorious Black future. This multimedia installation will communicate via the mediums of photography, dance/movement, fashion, and literature the personas and future tense embodiments. Movement artists will be styled in fashion that represents the work of their respective prototypes and future embodiment. Additionally, vintage fashion will be utilized because it is sustainable in a very literal way and the planet’s future is dependent on all us living a lot more green. On display, the photography will be hung in repurposed vintage framing complete with displays of attire and accessories that complement. Vignettes of each prototype will be choreographed inspired by their life and its significance to African American culture.
