About the event
“Hummmm so the Devil Can’t Hear” is an exhibit by Angela Davis Johnson and muthi reed as Hollerin’ Space.
hummm so the devil can’t hear is an interactive assemblage of archive materials, symbols/icons, printed matter and sound embedded with instructions on fugitivity, Black rebellion, and a new grapevine taking shape. How do you grow a grapevine and how does the vine spread for a fresh ecology that can feed the community it flows through? Are there literal and metaphorical recipes for wellness that folx have passed down /or been cultivating that will outlast capitalism? hummm so the devil can’t hear is a repository space of possibilities that will connect us in remembering our past present future ghosts, dreams, tools and wellness strategies. Hollerin Space offers a temporal landscape to imagine how we bridge our well being to one another.
