Reflections in BlaQ

Reflections in BlaQ

Reflections in BlaQ is a multidisciplinary project that unearths the voice of Jesse Harris, a Black gender expansive artist interviewed by filmmaker Marlon Riggs and featured briefly in Riggs' seminal documentary Tongues Untied (1989). The project is based on my critical and creative engagements with artist and scholar Marlon Riggs' archive at Stanford University. 

Performances  have been presented at  The 8th Floor for the Voices = Survival exhibition organized by Visual AIDS and the Center for African American Poetry and Poetics at the University of Pittsburgh.
