Land Is: Parks, Cultures, Stories

recurring event

Ramona Dallum Lindsey and Friends
Abdul Sharif, Jonathan P. Cherry, Joshua Jean-Marie, Nubia Bennett, T. A. Yero and City Voice

The African-American Quilting Tradition is a metaphor for the American Black experience. In this tradition, small bits of textiles seemingly worn, tattered, undervalued, and discarded are reimagined, stitched, and transformed into beautiful, culturally significant items of value and life. Ramona Dallum Lindsey uses this process to explore the importance of public spaces for individuals to connect to land as a form of cultural expression and storytelling.

In Land Is: Parks, Cultures, Stories, Ramona Dallum Lindsey stitches together the overlooked images, unheard voices and unrecognized actions of Louisville’s various cultures to invite viewers to consider the importance of parks and other public gathering spaces while exploring the roles we individually play in maintaining systemic inequity. The installation explores what happens to a community when economic and racial inequity leads to oppressive and under resourced public spaces. Land Is: Parks, Cultures, Stories restores hope by providing evidence of ways people protect and reclaim their full humanity through their access to land and public spaces.
