THE BLACK│BODY: RE-STAGED
The Evanston Art Center will recognize the 25th anniversary of the ADA by celebrating how far we have come while recognizing the amount of work for equality and inclusion there is left to do by featuring performer and artist Barak Ade Soleil. Barak’s work examines what it means to be a disabled black artist and challenges audiences to acknowledge that experience. Barak will give two performances of the Black│Body: Re-staged, a triptych from a larger project called the Black │ Body curatorial project from earlier this year. This work spotlights disability, gender, race, art and sexuality to boldly be in the world without compromise. Additionally, Barak will offer an artist talk on Monday, November 9.
