Our ancestors used art as triggers to communicate with things that occurred in the past.” - Olayami Dabls

Local Axis : Documentary Series

Red Bull Arts is pleased to present LOCAL AXIS, an abstract study in movement, sound, and time. The video series connects three Detroit artists with thee of the city’s most influential cultural spaces, curators, and artists to explore these spaces through an intimate, experimental lens that weaves together artistic practice, ancestry, and Detroit history. The pilot episode will feature multidisciplinary artist and dancer Bree Gant in conversation with curator Olayami Dabls in a moving exploration of the Dabls Mbad African Bead Museum, an expansive collection of outdoor installations encompassing almost an entire city block. Deconstructing traditional interpretations of museums, art and time, they reconsider conceptualizations of the magic and material that define their very building blocks.
