4:3 with Janelle Monáe & Jenn Nkiru: AFROFREQUENCY

4:3 by Boiler Room is proud to unveil the first wave of AFROFREQUENCY, a new season curated by Jenn Nkiru which aims to shift the mainstream gaze of Afrofuturism and return it back to the source of it all: the frequency, the expression.

On 13th September, Jenn Nkiru and Janelle Monáe will meet live in London for an intimate and relaxed evening which will see both women in-conversation exploring ideas of identity, womanhood, art, music and blackness.

The evening will also feature a screening of Monae’s emotion picture, DIRTY COMPUTER as well as meditation and poetry by Belinda Zhawi and DJ sets by Born N Bread and BBZ.

Unfolding through a rich multimedia series of events, films and editorial, AFROFREQUENCY aims to give you the codes to return back and the inspiration to imagine forward. Stay tuned for what's next via fourthree.boilerroom.tv
