Thought surrounding the ontology of the gesture, for most remains in abstract space. For black folks this discourse was waged violently upon our bodies. Thus, the notion of the abstract gesture cannot be, and is never neutral.  – Y. Malik Jalal

Surplus in Pantomime was originated in 2022 by Alabama Contemporary Art Center, Mobile, Alabama.

Known as the “keeper of the images,” Kwame Brathwaite deployed his photography
from the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s as an agent of social change. Born

in Brooklyn to a Caribbean American family and raised in the Bronx, Brathwaite

traces his artistic and political sensibilities to his youth. After seeing the horrific

images of Emmett Till published in Jet magazine in 1955, Brathwaite and his

brother Elombe Brath turned to art and political activism, absorbing the ideas of

the Jamaican-born activist Marcus Garvey, who promoted a Pan-Africanist vision

for black economic liberation and freedom.

This exhibition is organized by Aperture, New York and Kwame S. Brathwaite. It is curated by Kwame S. Brathwaite and Michael Famighetti.

The exhibition Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite and the

accompanying Aperture publication are made possible, in part, by generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Photographic Arts Council Los Angeles.

Donté K. Hayes’ work is inspired by researching traditional African heirlooms, initiation rites of birth, adulthood, marriage, eldership, and ancestry which are essential to all human growth and speaks to the greater African diaspora. The repeated texture and patterns on the surface of his sculptures imbue a visual language of memory, ritual, comfort and a sense of familiarity to viewers. Hayes’ sculptures are vessels that are turned upside down, symbolizing the crazy world we live in.

Locations: Vestavia Hills 10, and Patton Creek 15 theaters.

LOURDES, a small village where the Virgin Mary appeared to a young girl about 150 years ago. And where few miracles have been recognized by the church but not recognized and recounted by thousands. The biggest of them is the heart with which pilgrims come and go, each one with something to heal: mentally, physically or spiritually. Still today LOURDES is more alive than ever. And Our Lady remains active and attentive to each of her children. About 6 million people visit it every year. After the pandemic, her devotion is increasing. The multitudinous processions of people seeking a miracle feed a small army of caregivers (nurses, volunteers, hospitalists) who accompany them. These pilgrims are an amazing display of humanity: accident victims, the terminally ill, an overweight teenager being bullied at school, a group of prostitutes and trans people from Paris, etc. LOURDES is an insightful meditation on the human capacity for empathy and hope, and especially a journey into the mystery of religious faith in the face of life's profound tribulations.

The night will begin with sets limited to 15 minutes for people who sign up on our list. We do recommend arriving early to get a spot. The focus on this event is to foster an appreciation for live performances of synths, drum machines, and other electronic controllers and devices. Just a note: We do love to see DJs, but this is more about the free form, improvised manipulation of original electronic music.

After the open mic portion ends, some notable local Birmingham musicians will be performing an impromptu set while spread throughout the entire venue in complete surround sound. We are really excited to hear all your new noise and circuit bent sounds. See you there!

Susan will speak at a luncheon and a casual supper where she will share timely, life-shaping messages relevant for all ages and stages of life. “Our friend Susan has walked with God for decades. … Her encouragement is intensely practical. Her life stories give hope to anyone of any age who desires to know God more deeply,” say Barbara and Dennis Rainey, co-founders of Family Life. Proceeds from both events will provide life-changing scholarships to students with significant financial need and challenging circumstances.

“Discovering an Infinite, Intimate God” is the theme of Susan’s message for the Legacy League’s annual Scholarship Luncheon to be held at a country club in Vestavia. Premium sponsors are Brookdale University Park and Wells Fargo Advisors.  Doors will open at 10:45 a.m. for the Silent Auction for Scholarships, and the program will begin at 11:30 a.m.  Reservations (required) are $55, $26 of which is a tax-deductible donation.

That evening, Susan will speak on “Trusting God in Life’s Transitions” at an event on Samford’s campus which is open to the public. Guests will enjoy a light supper and table conversation facilitated by Susan. Reservations (required) are $20.

A returning and beloved guest of the Legacy League, Susan is a mom to five, grandmother to 21 and wife to John. The couple lives in Falls Church, Virginia, where John served as a senior pastor for 40 years. Susan’s powerful gift of communication extends beyond book pages and blog posts as she frequently speaks on topics of faith, scripture, and family. If it’s up to Susan, you won’t find her in the kitchen or at the mall — she’ll be outside enjoying God’s creation with her golden retriever.

The Legacy League, a philanthropic organization with nearly 800 members ranging in age from 22 to 100, offers meaningful volunteer opportunities, inspirational programs, and a friendly, caring community to all who become involved. To date, the Legacy League has awarded over $1.3 million in scholarships to assist students who have endured challenges including homelessness, inner-city violence, death or disability of a parent, abandonment, parental addiction and incarceration, and the sacrifices of full-time ministry.

Thought surrounding the ontology of the gesture, for most remains in abstract space. For black folks this discourse was waged violently upon our bodies. Thus, the notion of the abstract gesture cannot be, and is never neutral.  – Y. Malik Jalal

Known as the “keeper of the images,” Kwame Brathwaite deployed his photography
from the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s as an agent of social change. Born

in Brooklyn to a Caribbean American family and raised in the Bronx, Brathwaite

traces his artistic and political sensibilities to his youth. After seeing the horrific

images of Emmett Till published in Jet magazine in 1955, Brathwaite and his

brother Elombe Brath turned to art and political activism, absorbing the ideas of

the Jamaican-born activist Marcus Garvey, who promoted a Pan-Africanist vision

for black economic liberation and freedom.

This exhibition is organized by Aperture, New York and Kwame S. Brathwaite. It is curated by Kwame S. Brathwaite and Michael Famighetti.

The exhibition Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite and the

accompanying Aperture publication are made possible, in part, by generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Photographic Arts Council Los Angeles.

Donté K. Hayes’ work is inspired by researching traditional African heirlooms, initiation rites of birth, adulthood, marriage, eldership, and ancestry which are essential to all human growth and speaks to the greater African diaspora. The repeated texture and patterns on the surface of his sculptures imbue a visual language of memory, ritual, comfort and a sense of familiarity to viewers. Hayes’ sculptures are vessels that are turned upside down, symbolizing the crazy world we live in.

Locations: Vestavia Hills 10, and Patton Creek 15 theaters.

LOURDES, a small village where the Virgin Mary appeared to a young girl about 150 years ago. And where few miracles have been recognized by the church but not recognized and recounted by thousands. The biggest of them is the heart with which pilgrims come and go, each one with something to heal: mentally, physically or spiritually. Still today LOURDES is more alive than ever. And Our Lady remains active and attentive to each of her children. About 6 million people visit it every year. After the pandemic, her devotion is increasing. The multitudinous processions of people seeking a miracle feed a small army of caregivers (nurses, volunteers, hospitalists) who accompany them. These pilgrims are an amazing display of humanity: accident victims, the terminally ill, an overweight teenager being bullied at school, a group of prostitutes and trans people from Paris, etc. LOURDES is an insightful meditation on the human capacity for empathy and hope, and especially a journey into the mystery of religious faith in the face of life's profound tribulations.

The night will begin with sets limited to 15 minutes for people who sign up on our list. We do recommend arriving early to get a spot. The focus on this event is to foster an appreciation for live performances of synths, drum machines, and other electronic controllers and devices. Just a note: We do love to see DJs, but this is more about the free form, improvised manipulation of original electronic music.

After the open mic portion ends, some notable local Birmingham musicians will be performing an impromptu set while spread throughout the entire venue in complete surround sound. We are really excited to hear all your new noise and circuit bent sounds. See you there!

Bestselling Christian Author Susan Alexander Yates to Speak at Two Legacy League Events on February 9

On Thursday, February 9, the Legacy League will host Susan Alexander Yates, bestselling Christian author of 16 books, including Risky Faith: Becoming Brave Enough to Trust the God who is Bigger Than Your World and Cousin Camp. Susan will speak at a luncheon and a casual supper where she will share timely, life-shaping messages relevant for all ages and stages of life. “Our friend Susan has walked with God for decades. … Her encouragement is intensely practical. Her life stories give hope to anyone of any age who desires to know God more deeply,” say Barbara and Dennis Rainey, co-founders of Family Life. Proceeds from both events will provide life-changing scholarships to students with significant financial need and challenging circumstances.

“Discovering an Infinite, Intimate God” is the theme of Susan’s message for the Legacy League’s annual Scholarship Luncheon to be held at a country club in Vestavia. Premium sponsors are Brookdale University Park and Wells Fargo Advisors.  Doors will open at 10:45 a.m. for the Silent Auction for Scholarships, and the program will begin at 11:30 a.m.  Reservations (required) are $55, $26 of which is a tax-deductible donation.

That evening, Susan will speak on “Trusting God in Life’s Transitions” at an event on Samford’s campus which is open to the public. Guests will enjoy a light supper and table conversation facilitated by Susan. Reservations (required) are $20.

A returning and beloved guest of the Legacy League, Susan is a mom to five, grandmother to 21 and wife to John. The couple lives in Falls Church, Virginia, where John served as a senior pastor for 40 years. Susan’s powerful gift of communication extends beyond book pages and blog posts as she frequently speaks on topics of faith, scripture, and family. If it’s up to Susan, you won’t find her in the kitchen or at the mall — she’ll be outside enjoying God’s creation with her golden retriever.

The Legacy League, a philanthropic organization with nearly 800 members ranging in age from 22 to 100, offers meaningful volunteer opportunities, inspirational programs, and a friendly, caring community to all who become involved. To date, the Legacy League has awarded over $1.3 million in scholarships to assist students who have endured challenges including homelessness, inner-city violence, death or disability of a parent, abandonment, parental addiction and incarceration, and the sacrifices of full-time ministry.
