 The Flight: A Performance

 Nandipha Mntambo (left), Johannesburg-based interdisciplinary artist, will present an original piece of performance art. Inspired by Spanish bullfights and Miguel Torga's book Miura (2013), the work explores concepts of empathy, violence, and spectatorship while challenging the binary between human and animal.

 This performance is the third event in the Black History/Art History Lecture and Performance Series, which is generously sponsored by the Provostial Fund for the Arts and Humanities, Hutchins Center for African & African American Research, Center for African Studies, Harvard Art Museums, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Department of African and African American Studies, and Program in American Studies.

Free and open to the public.
