Meet your curators: Black TM
Black ™ is a curatorial/ performance-based collaboration (Slant Rhyme and Raven Crane). Their performance work consists of essays, conversations, and archival investigations that seek to explore the paradoxes, limitations, and social ramifications of black and trans representation within contemporary culture, and contradictions of capitalism and its deleterious effects on bodies, movement, time, and land. Blackness as a form of intellectual property.
This project is made possible with support from The Idea Fund. The Idea Fund is a re-granting program administered by DiverseWorks, Aurora Picture Show, and Project Row Houses and funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Trans Justice Funding Project.”
