Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom is a nine-week art exhibit based on a digital humanities project called Digital Aponte. The exhibit and the conversations, screenings, performances, residencies, and workshops that accompany it are organized by the Power Plant Gallery and the Forum for Scholars and Publics. The Power Plant Gallery is an initiative of the Center for Documentary Studies and the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts at Duke University. The Forum for Scholars and Publics at Duke is a place where scholars and various publics — local, national, and global — can interact and intersect to generate greater exchange between the university and the broader world.[Thumbnail photo: José Bedia, Júbilo de Aponte, 2017 (detail)]
