Over the run of the exhibition “Groundings,” the performers hold open rehearsals in which they create performances and physical objects that speak to the themes of the exhibition. Informal performances occur at 6 pm on Fridays and will be followed by an opportunity for artists to solicit feedback from assembled participants and audiences.
Jennifer Harge is developing TOMBOY, an immersive exhibition that premieres in Detroit later in 2019. The work invests in the creation of black space and black queer liberation practices through the mundane, the intimate, and the domestic. Harge has worked as a movement artist for over 15 years. Her approach to form combines the multiplicity of her black and queer identities with her training in postmodern dance.
In Progress is a series of public programs designed to give artists, thinkers, and curators a platform for developing new works, and to give patrons a glimpse into the creative process. The exhibition “Groundings” is organized by Assistant Curator Grace Deveney and Associate Curator of Performance Tara Aisha Willis. It is presented in the Turner Galleries on the museum’s fourth floor.
**This event is free with museum admission.**
