    “Memorial” is an immersive audio/visual installation that considers the African American perspective. It is constructed inside Chroma’s Vault by Bolanle Adeboye and built around loss, remembrance and veneration. Ritual acts, music and poetry, idiosyncratic and personal, invite us all into a space of communal creation, remembrance, awareness and compassion.

    Memorial’s Sound Map is an homage to Black activists who came before, many who defended Charlottesville two years ago, and and those who continue to do this very difficult work oftentimes unsung and at their own personal expense.
