EMAS Presents invites you to the screening of Bryan Dematteis’ Creation Equals Movement, a documentary on The Black Artists’ Group of St. Louis. 

The Black Artists’ Group (BAG) was a multidisciplinary arts collective that was active from 1968-1972. “At the peak of the national Black Arts Movement, the Black Artists’ Group of St. Louis (BAG) was unique in their interdisciplinary, artistic approach to combating social injustice and exploring the far reaches of experimental performance. The political and racial climate in America at that time shaped the group, but also produced the burdens that ultimately led to the group’s dissolution. ​This documentary seeks to illuminate the history of BAG, the group’s political and artistic achievements, and the impact that it had on the lives of those associated with the group.”
