@ BLK LDG

6pm-10pm

Inspired by the writing of Maria Lugones, feminist chicana professor at Binghamton University, this show explores themes of identity and marginalization within marginalized communities. How do alternative communities and communities of color replicate oppressive social constructs? How does this affect people on the individual level? Join us for a show of artist working in performance art, drawing, photography and poetry, as they interpret themes of identity in a post-Obama USA.
