Deadline

On August 6th and 13th, curator Sabrina Chap will host a special two-part edition of Deadline focusing on racism.

Deadline asks performance artists, filmmakers, and writers to stop posting on Facebook and create new works that engage racism on some level. As at every edition of Deadline, audience members are asked to provide short, anonymous written responses to each performance as a way of providing feedback to the artists.

 
Part 1, on August 6th, will feature:

 

Nefertiti Asanti – poetry
Zave Martohardjono – film
Robert Hyers – personal essay
Damien Luxe – performance art
Jamie Leo – personal essay

 

Deadline is a works-in-progress series featuring new work from cutting-edge queer artists. Built on the notion that there’s no greater inspiration than a deadline, this series forces renegade artists to bring new and developing work to an audience for the first time. Part experimentation + part guaranteed failure = 100% awesomeness.
 
Hosted by Sabrina Chap.
