Aisha Cousins – Mapping Soulville

BedStuy

Mapping Soulville is part of a larger series by Aisha Cousins called SAY IT LOUD!: Performance Art Scores for the Young Gifted and Fabulous. The scores reflect Cousins’ artist philosophy which emphasizes critical thinking and research skills. Each score teaches a little about art (especially performance art), introduces a contemporary or historical artist, and explores some aspect of black history or culture. It centers on expanding the pre-existing practice of renaming streets in black communities to reflect residents’ culture and history. For this interpretation, Cousins will invite her neighbors to imagine a map of Malcolm X Blvd full of intersecting streets that create a walkable timeline of Malcolm’s life.
