Secret Garden

Stephanie Dinkins

Travel across space and time and immerse yourself in this fitting reminder that sharing and receiving stories is in fact an act of resistance.
Generations of black women who have survived slave boats, grown up on 1920s Black-owned farms, lived through 9/11, and more are all waiting for you in Stephanie Dinkins’ AI-powered garden. After a critically acclaimed run at the Sundance Festival, this immersive work, is returning to NYC in a new VR installation that you can’t miss out on.
