Curator’s comments

Aminah composed this music to accompany Symphonic Poem, a multimedia performance that she envisions with art, music, dance, and dialogue as she interprets the stories that have been handed down to her by her Uncle Alvin and others.

Artist’s comments

[Symphonic Poem] is a body of work where souls live, breathe, fly, and mingle in freedom-community where lives are lived, forming generations of people with one long memory. My upbringing of creative independence has impressed upon me the importance of creating innovative and inventive art that is based on family and community histories. It is a gift I create to be passed on to future generations.
