1,000   MATTERS

CURATORIAL   statement

born out of a project seminar titled BODIES & SPACES AS OBJECTS this collaboration

between six courageous artists could have only undertaken at the confluence

between research, outreach, practice, analysis; with the 2016 presidential primaries

& elections in the backdrop, in the era of  frustrating, emotionally draining footages

of police officers assaulting & murdering black americans   1, 000 MATTERS   

parses through such matters via matter-of-fact, immaterial, live & broadcasted mediums.
