Adah Hannah – The Decameron Retold

February 9 - March 20

February 9 – April 20

Adah Hannah – The Decameron Retold
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
Opening Reception: February 9, 2pm-5pm. Exhibition: February 10 – April 20.
dad Hannah’s, The Decameron Retold, is a newly commissioned work by the Richmond Art Gallery. It is based on Giovanni Boccaccio’s 14th century work, The Decameron, a collection of novellas comprised of one hundred tales told by ten young women and men sequestered in a villa outside of Florence to escape the Black Plague.
For the exhibition Hannah has created a series of video tableaux vivants using Boccaccio’s frame narrative as the departure point. Working with community members in front of and behind the camera, and incorporating local stories gathered through an open call, participants lay their own stories over The Decameron’s structure. This new narrative expands Hannah’s typical improvisational approach to production and community engagement.
