The third in a series of events organized by AUX's fourth Curatorial Fellow, Anthony Romero, Romero and AUX present a night of performance and film, with esoteric performance actions from artists Nick Bastis and Dorian McKaie, and film by Vox Populi alumnus Cudelice Brazelton. The AUX Curatorial Fellowships, run by Vox Populi Gallery, have been supported by a grant from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
Anthony Romero is a Chicago artist, writer, and curator interested in documenting and supporting artist-communities whose narratives and practices are often excluded from art historical narratives and exhibitions. Nick Bastis continues an exploration of speaking and absence with a new video and performance about ventriloquism, and Dorian McKaie presents a new performance piece in which the distinctions between speaking to and speaking for are dissolved. Vox Populi Alumnus Cudelice Brazelton returns with a new series of video works that elaborate upon his work with black male troupes in society and art.
