Root Shock, August-Oct 2008

Obsidian Arts Presents Root Shock

What causes root shock? Who imposes root shock? Who survives it? What happens to cultural, moral, physical, spiritual, economic, social, psychological roots?

Inspired by Dr. Mindy Thompson Fullilove’s book "Root Shock: How Tearing Up City Neighborhoods Hurts America And What We Can Do About it", Obsidian Arts (curated by Marlina Gonzalez) presents a show around the concept of the not-so-random acts of social dismemberment and transplantations imposed on any culture perceived as “the other’.

The show features:
Catherine Kennedy (Liberia)
Usry Alleyne (Guyana)
Heba Amin (Egypt)
Sankara Djeki (Cameroon)
