You do not want to miss Grammy Award-winning musician Vernon Reid's multi-media performance that merges music, hip hop, film, and visual art to tell the story of "Artificial Afrika: A Tale of Lost Cities." From Feb 10-25 at Dixon Place on the Lower East Side in NYC Vernon will explore the pop culture mythologies that have created an artificial Africa in the minds of many. Vernon's project unpacks the symbolic meaning of powerful representations like Tarzan and Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness." Watch the promo video above and buy tickets here.
