6. “Adama Delphine Fawundu: Wata Bodis” at Project for Empty Space, Newark

Adama Delphine Fawundu, a 2022 artist-in-residence at Project for Empty Space, presents an exhibition featuring a 360-video projection and mixed-media hanging sculptures made from hand-dyed fabrics. Fawundu conceived of the exhibition, which is inspired by the African diaspora experience, as a spiritual conversation with her namesake, her late grandmother who she called Mama Adama. “Although our physical bodies have only shared space on this earth for 23 years, our spirits have always been intertwined,” Fawundu wrote in her artist’s statement.

Location: Project for Empty Space, 800 Broad Street, Newark.
Price: Free
Time: Wednesday–Saturday, 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
