Graduate Gallery

The multiracial individual occupies the space of the in(-)between—a frontier of perennial opportunities for progressive resistance. It is neither here nor there, not the occident or the other, but both: the hyphen. Expectations exist that if a visible indicator of someone's identity is not immediately present, it should manifest conspicuously. When the hyphen performs, it does so from an in(-)between space that is observable when written out, yet invisible when spoken aloud. But that does not mean it does not exist. in(Living)between is a stream-of-consciousness writing-on-the-walls performance live-streamed from a contained room that seeks to enact hyphenated identity through lived experiences of (mis)interpretations, (mis)pronunciations and (mis)identifications.

 

While the Graduate Gallery where the show is taking place will be closed off during the performance, the adjacent media room will project a live-stream of what is taking place inside that may be viewed there or accessed from anywhere in the world. The performance room will be revealed at the catered reception on March 21 in collaboration with Common Room where refreshments and snacks will be provided. The room will be left open for display with a recorded projection of the performance in the media room over the following weekend.
