Curator and co-director of Icebox Project Space Timothy Belknap presents an immersive performance and visual art installation created by artists Allyson Mitchell and Deirdre Logue. Killjoy’s Kastle finds its roots in queer feminist critique and traditional haunted houses and is comprised of sculptural objects constructed and activated by local and international artists. Inspired by changing social and personal landscapes, the large-scale work plays with themes of identity, race, gender, and class. At the end of each tour of Killjoy’s Kastle, audiences will be invited into a space for contemplation and facilitated conversations.
