'Project Diaspora'

SCAD FASH Film series

View a series of short documentaries and music videos that explore the relationships between Africa, global fashion and pop culture. Join us for a discussion led by Storm Janse van Rensburg, SCAD head curator of exhibitions, and Imani Michelle Scott, Ph.D., SCAD liberal arts professor.

This screening is in conjunction with Omar Victor Diop’s exhibition "Project Diaspora." The exhibition is a rich, meticulously crafted essay of 18 works of art that explore the often neglected, but deeply entangled historical relationships between Africa and the rest of the world, including trade, early diplomatic encounters and the legacy of slavery.

This yearlong film series highlights current SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film exhibitions and offers a behind-the-scenes look into the world of fashion and design. Screenings are free for museum members and SCAD Card holders, and are open to the public with the cost of SCAD FASH admission.
