Back and Song
Year: 2019
Project Type: Exhibition Identity
Client: Bradford Young &
Elissa Blount Moorhead
Back and Song is a meditative four-channel film and art installation by filmmakers Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young, produced by Philadelphia Contemporary and Thomas Jefferson University. This kaleidoscopic installation reflects on the complex and profound connections between health, wellness, and the Black experience in America. Back and Song considers the labor and care provided by generations of Black healers— including doctors, nurses, midwives, morticians, therapists, and health aides—and their historic contributions to, and resistance of, flawed and discriminatory structures within Western medicine.

Working with Bradford Young, Elissa Blount Moorhead, and Philadelphia Contemporary, I designed the exhibition identity and promotional materials across print and web for Back and Song’s debut premiere in Philadelphia, before it travels to other cities across the country.
