We are proud to support British artist Selina Thompson at the 2018 Fusebox Festival in Austin, Texas.
How many questions do you have about race? Selina Thompson has a thousand and counting. When asked a question, sometimes it’s not about having the right answer, but about starting a difficult, necessary conversation, about asking ourselves and our communities to challenge our own assumptions and beliefs. Selina Thompson’s installation and performance, comprised of 1,000 questions about race painstakingly transcribed onto note cards, can be thought of as generous invitations to start a conversation and reflect critically on the complexities and intersections of identity. An evolving archive and research project, Race Cards provides an important opportunity to reflect, ask questions of ourselves, and contribute to an archive of feelings, memories, and ideas that too often go unspoken.
When: Installation Hours: Wed 18 @ 5-9pm, Thur 19, Fri 20, Sat 21 @ 1-8pm, Sun 22 @ 1-5pm, Durational Performance: Sat 21 @ 2pm (4 hrs), April 2018
