Fusebox in collaboration with the Carver Museum and Cultural Center, Fusebox is launching Technologies and Theologies of Liberation, a monthly reading and discussion group designed to engage Austin-based artists, scholars, art enthusiasts, and people interested in exploring theoretical frameworks around blackness, identity, and creative practice. This initiative is being launched in anticipation of Fusebox Festival 2019 presentation of Jaamil Olawale Kosoko 's richly complex performance work, Séancers, which will be presented at Fusebox Festival 2019 (April 17 - 21, 2019), as well as the following upcoming exhibitions and performances at Carver Museum:
Remembering is the Responsibility of the Living, an installation by the Brooklyn-based artist Taja Lindley. Lindley will perform her work The Bag Lady Manifesta in April 2019.
constant escape, an exhibition featuring the works of Adrian Aguilera, Betelhem Makonnen, and Tammie Rubin, the founding members of Black Mountain Project.
Both of the exhibitions will be on view from March 7, 2019 – July 27, 2019.
It is our hope that through dialogue, examination, and discussion participants will be able to contextualize these richly complex bodies of work. In addition, we hope to begin bridging the gap that often exists between creatives, scholars, and audiences.
