Counter Current: Keep Some Sun On Your Face says

Houston-based performance artist Autumn Knight, whose poetic and viscerally engaging multimedia work enthralls with honesty and power, creates a collaborative multimedia structure to explore the relationship between stand-up comedy and music in Black American artistic and entertainment traditions. Through stand-up performances, lectures, cinema and an interdisciplinary presentation of sound art, Knight takes us on a fascinating tour of the Black American economies of survival.

Drawing on the rich history of vaudeville acts, the political usages of African-American comedy, music and contemporary pop culture crossovers, Knight will work with two sound designers and DJs – Philadelphia-based Mekeva McNeil and Houston’s own Jason Woods (Flash Gordon Parks) – to create a one of a kind sonic experience. Knight will have events during the run of the show at the gallery. Please visit for more information.
