AN EVENING WITH AKOSUA ADOMA OWUSU
For ONE NIGHT ONLY, avant-garde filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu will join us at Spectacle for a special presentation of her short-form works - including (but not limited to) INTERMITTENT DELIGHT (2007), ME BRONI BA (2009) and SPLIT ENDS, I FEEL WONDERFUL  (2012), with Q&A to follow.

Akosua Adoma Owusu is a Ghanaian-American filmmaker and producer whose films have screened worldwide in prestigious film festivals, museums, galleries, universities and microcinemas since 2005. Her work addresses the collision of identities, where the African immigrant located in the United States has a "triple consciousness. Owusu interprets Du Bois notion of double consciousness and creates a third identity or consciousness, representing the diverse consciousness of women and African immigrants interacting in African, white American, and black American culture.

Owusu's work is included in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Centre Pompidou, the Fowler Museum, Yale University Film Study Center, and Indiana University Bloomington, home of the Black Film Center/Archive. Owusu holds MFA degrees in Film & Video and Fine Art from California Institute of the Arts and received her BA in Media Studies and Studio Art with distinction from the University of Virginia. She divides her time between Ghana and New York, where she works as a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
