Guggenheim – Moving And Passing

Sebastian Diaz

By Sebastián Díaz

In summer 2017 as part of the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative, Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s moving and passing project implemented a curriculum at South Bronx United’s Summer Soccer Scholars program, through a five-week course for high school students, facilitated by poet and teaching artist Mahogany L. Browne. The curriculum—titled M-PACT—is based on themes borrowed from Joseph’s performance /peh-LO-tah/ and uses art and poetry to focus on contemporary social and political issues.
