LIVE ART PERFORMANCE | “Blues\Blank\Black”

Artist Dell Marie Hamilton will perform "Blues\Blank\Black".

Thursday, February 27, 2020
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Hood Museum of Art
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Arts, Exhibitions, Performances

This roving performance incorporates key components from the popular Toni Morrison novels The Bluest Eye and Beloved. Through gesture, color, repetition, and remix, it conflates fiction, folklore, live art, and persona to interrogate trauma, perception, and spectatorship.

*Due to the high interest in this performance, please note this is first-come-first-serve. There will be a Q&A after the performance followed by an opportunity to talk with the artist at a reception co-sponsored by Dartmouth’s South House.

The performance is taking place in conjunction with the exhibition Reconstitution.
