The Fall 2017 / Winter 2018 curator is Ebony Noelle Golden, who has curated Audrey Elaine HailesJaimé Yawa Dzandu, and Courtney J. Cook performing on October 16, 30, and November 13.

Curatorial Statement || Experiments in Creative Emancipation

Audrey Elaine Hailes, Jaimé Yawa Dzandu, and Courtney J. Cook make work that is challenging, thick, messy, purposeful, durational, muscular, textured, and requires full-bodied participation from the audience. This is the kind of art we need. Cheers to these bold and necessary artists for making work that challenges the times and sets a vision for emancipation in action.
