Philadelphia artist Tiona McClodden presents a new online project for Day With(out) Art, commemorating celebrated African-American poet Essex Hemphill on the twentieth anniversary of his death from AIDS complications in Philadelphia, where he was a crucial member of the city’s creative community.

Af·fixing Ceremony: Four Movements for Essex took over ICA’s website on World AIDS Day, as an online ritual to invoke Hemphill’s spirit.
