JERON BRAXTON: GLUCOSE AND OCTANE
March 4–May 29
Stemming from a collaboration with Colorado College’s Black Student Union launched in Black History Month, the Fine Arts Center is proud to present a special curated installation of digital work from self-taught artist and award-winning filmmaker Jeron Braxton.
On view now in the FAC museum’s Hybl Screening Room, the installation consists of 2 Sundance Festival award-winning animated videos.
Glucose is a short film investigating the colonial history of sugar as the engine of the slave trade.
Octane deals with the modern commodification of black bodies bringing to light some of the darker aspects to seemingly harmless consumerism.
Each runs approximately 6 and 14 minutes.
