Shh! An MCAD MFA Show @ Hennepin County Central Library

Azisa, Adam, Sieng, and I have new work up at the Hennepin County Central Library. My installation is Public Speaking () and consists of two new pieces:

  • Public Speaking (Read-Along), an interactive multimedia installation that uses speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr. and Barbara Jordan as points of departure for ruminations on acts of citizenship and collective memory;
  • and Public Speaking (Quiet as it’s kept,), an month-long still photography project that documents in gestures individual experiences with public speaking.

Public Speaking (Read-Along) #1 - Statement on the Articles of Impeachment
