Portfolio > SUSU

Aisha Tandiwe Bell presents SUSU – a community-based arts project commissioned by The Laundromat Project.

In the Akan language of West Africa, “susu” means small-small. It refers to the build-up of small contributions that create something larger from which everyone benefits. Through a series of performances that will take place in front of Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Marmy Laundromat, Brooklyn-based artist Aisha Tandiwe Bell will create SUSU – a fabric sculpture made from articles of clothing donated by her neighbors.
