At the Threshold is a hypnotic, immersive new installation from Brooklyn-based video artist and director Corinne Spencer.
At the Threshold creates a sublime, mythologized journey beginning with longing, emptiness, and the yearning for love, and blossoming into tenderness and homecoming within the self. The work reenvisions the relationship between blackness and the land, moving from a story tangled up in America’s history of enslavement and forced labor, to one supplanting violence with tenderness, romance and mystery.
This show is presented in partnership with the Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts in Ithaca.
At The Threshold is the third of four 2022-23 Cherry Arts presentations to be generously funded by the Mellon Foundation Just Futures Initiative, the Cornell University Migration Initiative, and the Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs.
