Scholars have discussed the intentional boundaries surrounding certain bodies in art: what bodies are seen, what bodies do, and what bodies can look like. CAPE Dialogue: What is the Body? aims to explore the many interdisciplinary ways in which we can center our bodies within others and our environment to reimagine equity within the arts. If art is a product of a time, place, and culture that influences how narratives are constructed, then how can we (re)envision the possible futures and imaginations that could be evoked through the exclusion or inclusion of certain bodies and relationships? This event celebrates the following panelists: multimedia artist, michelle miles; Artistic Associate and Co-Leader of Shawngram Institute for Performance & Social Justice, Kealoha Ferreira; and choreographer and artistic director of Ayako Kato/Art Union Humanscape, Ayako Kato. CAPE Dialogue: What is the Body? is hosted by CAPE Program Coordinator, AmBer Montgomery, and CAPE Research Program Coordinator, Jenny Lee.
