Deathbowl to Downtown: The Evolution of Skateboarding New York City
Dir. Coan Nichols and Rick Charnoski (2009)
Deathbowl to Downtown documents the shift in skateboarding primacy from the parks and the pools of sunny California in the 70’s to the gritty streets of New York in the 90’s. This transition also foretells the recent hybrid uptake of skateboard culture in Harlem and other communities of color.

8:00PM Staring into the Sun
A film by Olivia Wyatt
Staring into the Sun is the latest ethno-folk cinema classic from Sublime Frequencies. Ethiopia is known to be one of the oldest areas inhabited by humans and presently has over 80 diverse ethnic groups. Photographer/filmmaker Olivia Wyatt explores 13 different tribes throughout Ethiopia in this visually stunning film. Traveling from the northern highlands to the lower Omo Valley, Wyatt brings together the worlds of Zar spirit possession; Hamer tribal wedding ceremonies; Borena water well polyphonic singing; wild hyena feedings; and bizarre Ethiopian TV segments; presenting an enchanting look at these ethereal images, landscapes and sounds from the horn of Africa. The tribes featured in this film are captured with an unflinching sense of realism and poetic admiration resulting in a visual and aural feast of the senses.
Land of the Songhai
A film By Hisham Mayet
Hisham Mayet’s latest film explores the music and landscape of the Songhai, around the Niger River in Western Niger. Zarma mock possession hoedowns, Wodaabe trance vocal performances, Spirit possession ceremonies, Godje one sting laments, contigi string masters, comsaa griots and Sahel night markets create a bizarre and fascinating glimpse into the arid and culturally vibrant bend in the Niger river.

Artist Dwayne Boone of Philadelphia Developmental Disabilities Corporation (PDDC) will be having his first solo exhibition at Space 1026 Gallery this April. A prolific painter, Boone will be showing over 150 portraits, landscapes, wildlife paintings, and several sculptural works, all created within the last year. Boone will also be creating a large, site-specific mural in the gallery space. Boone, who was recently featured on Channel 6 news uses his paintings to create a world both gritty and magical – and his work emerges as distinctly Philadelphian.
Dwayne Boone’s artistic talent has been recognized by many in the disabilities field, but this is the first exhibition for Boone that is strictly based on the quality of his artistic style and vision.
