Event Details

“Idle Crimes & Heavy Work” is a performance installation that centers black women’s experiences of gendered and racial violence — and modes of resistance and restoration — within the history of incarceration and convict labor and its contemporary trajectory as a legacy of slavery. This interactive choreographic work is developing in conjunction with The Georgia Incarceration Performance Project, and is presented as part of the Controlled Burn Hughley Artist Exhibition by Wonderroot at the Museum of Contemporary Art at Georgia. The live performance of “Idle Crimes & Heavy Work” along with performances by fellow Hughley Artists, will take place during the opening night reception (June 27, 6:30 – 8:30pm) and the video installation will run through August 24th.
