“Through Media Pass, we hope to bring together diverse communities of artists, musicians, cultural workers, and students. We hope to give back to the community by donating proceeds from artwork sales to a charity supporting young artists,” said Imani Dominique, the Curator and Project Manager.

Through vivid photography and an interactive video installation edited by Grace Munene, “Media Pass” will explore concert photography as an archival and community-based method for preserving cultural history.

Malaika Lorde from Manifesto Community Projects shared, “As a community arts organization, Manifesto is dedicated to uplifting folks in our community who are passionate and take initiative to highlight our vibrant arts industry.  “Media Pass” and those working to produce this exhibit have proven to align with our mission by making this event accessible to the community, highlighting the arts, and supporting local artists.”

This exhibition will be accessible both physically and digitally through a virtual space walkthrough, accessible seating, image descriptions, and ASL interpretation upon request.

By bringing together a variety of emerging and mid-career artists, “Media Pass” hopes to create a community filled, electric space celebrating the intersections of music and visual art.

“Media Pass” is curated by Imani Dominique Busby with production support from Sarah Itamah, Nkwachukwu Nwalozie, and Malaika Lorde. “Media Pass” is sponsored by Manifesto and Posterjack.
