The KIngs' Lessons
The Kings' Lessons, Vol. 4:
Part of #8x8_shangrila_21, an online exhibition of Hawai‘i artists responding to the concept of Place at Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art. In this soulful work performed in the Living Room and on the Upper Lawn, lyricist and learning scientist, Keith Cross (aka Doctabarz), offers a deep meditation on blackness and place at Shangri La--a museum originally designed as a home--asking if it is possible to discover a place where blackness can feel at home.
