Ephraim Asili is an African-American Artist, Filmmaker, D.J, Radio host, and traveler. Inspired by his day-to-day wanderings Asili creates art that situates itself as a series of meditations on everyday experience and media culture. Through audio-visual examinations of societal iconography identity, geography, and architecture Asili strives to present a personal vision. The results are perhaps best described as an amalgam of pop, African-American and “moving image” culture filtered through an acute sense of rhythmic improvisation and compositional awareness.
Ephraim Asili will be an artist in residence at Bard College in 2016. He hosts a radio show on WGXC 90.7 FM Hudson, New York. His films have screened at venues including Media City Film Festival, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, Wavelengths at TIFF, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
This residency is made possible by Momentum Film and Video Collective in partnership with Media City Film Festival. The organizations acknowledge generous support from the City of Windsor’s ACH Fund and the Canada Council for the Arts. Special thanks to our partners Mothlight Microcinema, Broadside Lotus Press, Corktown Cinema, Artcite Inc., Bloomfield Poetry House and Dabls African Bead Museum.
