PIGEON HOLE

Public Personae: Bodies in Transit // Bodies in Tumult (part 1)
Free Afternoon Public Performance series on the BCA Plaza 
(or in the BCA Mills Gallery if weather is uncooperative)
Curated by BCA Fall 2015 Artist Resident Ian Deleón 

This public event presents three short-duration interactive art projects on the BCA Plaza, revolving around themes including an exploration of the commodification of black bodies/black lives and the stereotypes and myths that perpetuate this process; experimentation with new forms of narrative and the transformative role of storytelling; and personal and activist possibilities raised by the act of reading together.  

The projects being presented:

  1. PIGEON HOLE a pop-up storefront installation by artists Jennifer Hall and Soledad Boyd, taking place in front of the BCA plaza garden, on the Tremont Street side, near corner of Tremont and Clarendon;
  2. The Water Bearer/La portadora de aqua site-specific performance by Dey Hernández, in front of the Mills Gallery; and
  3. READERS a gathering of collaborators organized by Ekua Holmes and Chanel Thervil, in and around the BCA plaza garden
