For Immediate Release

Hidden Colors 3: South Florida Screening | Miami Gardens

June 26, 2014- “Hidden Colors” — a documentary series about the cultural history of African Americans, identity and race in America, will be releasing the highly anticipated third installment, “The Rules Of Racism.” The film will focus on the topic of race, racism, and history within the United States. The project features various speakers from scholars such as Dick Gregory and Phil Valentine, to entertainment vets like Nas, KRS-ONE, David Banner and Paul Mooney.

The series’ director and producer Tariq “Elite” Nasheed — a New York Times bestselling author, public speaker, and radio host — is widely known for his social commentary. In the trailer, he briefly alludes to a certain motivation in approaching the topic of racism, “there’s never been a real dialogue in America about race because every time we talk about race the conversation then turns into ‘what’s wrong with black people.’” This documentary destroys the myths and lies about melinated people of African descent. For those who are seeking the truth about black history and the effects of systemic racism in this country, Hidden Colors 3 and the Hidden Colors series is a must watch. This documentary pertains to our youth, education, economics, world history amongst other topics from a melinated perspective. If the realization and understanding that racism in America still occurs till today, self adjustment can go into effect.

Hidden Colors 3: The Rules of Racism will be released June 26, 2014 and will be premiered in select theaters and locations around the country. South Florida patrons will have the opportunity to view this informative documentary FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY on the release date at Betty T. Ferguson Complex in Miami Gardens, 3000 NW 199th St, Miami Gardens, FL 33056.

Artist Naomi Fisher whose photograph in the permanent collection is on view in “AMERICANA: Desiring Landscape” speaks briefly about the role of the natural world in her imagery and introduces “Black Narcissus” (1947), a film of her choice which reflects similar ideas in the exhibition.

“Black Narcissus” (1947)
United Kingdom. Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. 101 minutes
This academy award winning Powell and Pressburger classic is set in a community of nuns struggling to establish a convent high in the Himalayas. Their spiritual aims are hampered by the arrival of a beautiful native girl and a young general, while isolation, extreme weather, altitude, and culture clashes all conspire to drive the well-intentioned missionaries mad. Winner of two Oscars for Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography.

The “Desiring Landscape” gallery considers how representations of the landscape have been a means to explore human desires-from the sensual and sexual to the materialistic-to alternate interpretations of history. In correlation to the film, a brief, free public tour of “Desiring Landscape” and “Edouard Duval-Carrié: Imagined Landscapes” will also be offered at 6:30pm.

Free with museum admission. Seating begins at 6:30pm. Introduction and film screening begins at 7pm.

Self-parking on-site as available ($2/hour) / Metromover: Museum Park station /

Members of the art collective Yemenwed will screen segments of past projects, with a focus on movement and music. They will discuss the process behind the performative aspects of their work.

Yemenwed is an art collective founded in 2006 in New York City. They create collaborative works, which synthesize the artistic focus of its varying members in the fields of architecture, painting, sculpture, animation, performance, and music.

The group maintains an active interest in the vocabulary of mainstream popular culture and its conventions, as well as entertainment value and notions of beauty. Each piece invariably reflects the different personal aesthetic and conceptual interests of the individual artists forming the work.

Yemenwed has released several publications and has participated in exhibitions and performances at Palais de Tokyo, Tate Modern, MOMA P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art TBA:10, Performa 09, Fake Estate Gallery, 179 Canal, Hessel Museum of Art, Asia Song Society, and Jack Hanley Gallery, among other venues.

Yemenwed are PAMM Researchers-in-Residence. This is the first of three visits, culminating in a final commissioned project in October 2014.
