Artist, Christina Springer
Futuristic Relics & Motherboards Sacred are part of an on-going collection of videos, paintings, ritual objects, textiles, and temple icons which contemplate the future utopia people (Black) will experience by the 31st Century. Through manipulations of space and time, Christina Springer has called into being and manifested relics and artifacts from The Monongahela Territories. On display will be works which exist due to Memory Transfer Sessions from 31st Century Egunographers & SpiriTechs. This work was made possible in part by The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments joint program "Advancing The Black Arts In Pittsburgh," as well as, Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, Artist Opportunity Grant.
Christina Springer is an Alt.Black artist who uses text, performance, video and other visual expressions to communicate what the space between molecules in the air wish for you to know. Most recently, her visual art has been shown at the San Jose Martin Luther King Library, Dayton Visual Art Center, and Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council. Her book, The Splooge Factory is forthcoming from Frayed Edge Press in November. Her most recent theatrical offering, “She Diva Died. & Come Again?” incorporated text, movement, music and video to explore the challenges and joys of raising a Black man. Cave Canem shaped her voice. Her poems have appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies. Her educational outreach work included four site-specific, mixed-media projects with youth at The Tower Of London. Springer resides in Pittsburgh where she home educates her son.
