Experience a special activation of Torkwase Dyson’s sculptural installation Liquid A Place 2021 to mark the temporary closure of Tate Liverpool and following the end of the Liverpool Biennial 2023, uMoya: The Sacred Return of Lost Things.
Torkwase Dyson and Lynnée Denise will discuss the principle of uMoya meaning spirit, breath, air, climate and wind through the lens of the Blues.
DJ Lynnée Denise will read excerpts from her new book Why Willie Mae Thornton Matters, discussing vocal genius in the Blues, improvisation, and the force of queer Black imagination.
Dyson will read from her forthcoming book of poems A Dark Plunge to discuss the effect of abstraction and why hauntology is fundamental to her form.
The event lasts approximately 40 minutes and is followed by a Q&A.
