DC --> BOS: Performance exchange @ MASSArt

  • Massachusetts School of Art and Design Boston, MA

What do Boston and Washington D.C. have in common?

Both have tourist attractions and transient communities and cultures. But these places, like many in development, are home to segregation and gentrification. Everyday in major cities, bodies and vessels are moving and traveling from one destination to another destination. One relocates so another may enter. One takes risks to create or halt opportunity. 

How does an individual extend their body through objects and technology?

The individuals in Transient Vessels have lived and worked in both D.C. and Boston. These works comment on gender, sexuality, and class: they use live action in earnest dialogue to address power and privilege. These works are overtly and covertly political.
