The Extension public art podcast
The Extension is a podcast by Flux Projects that invites cultural contributors to participate in Atlanta-focused conversations relating to public art in social contexts.
In this conversation visual artist Charmaine Minniefield chats with Floyd Hall about Remembrance as Resistance: Preserving Black Narratives, her upcoming project with Flux Projects in partnership with Emory University and Historic Oakland Cemetery.
Minniefield delves into how this project fits into her artistic practice, the importance of the Ring Shout, her upbringing in the Pentecostal church, and what she wants the public to connect with in this work.
Author Anne Corbitt chats with Floyd Hall about ATL Mysteries and bringing its source material, “The Disappearance of Eliot Wiley”, to life in an interactive way. Corbitt also discusses writing her first novel, Rules for Lying, and how the city of Atlanta and the Urban South play a role in her upbringing and her work.
