Yellow Towel | Dana Michel says
As a child Dana Michel would drape a yellow towel on her head to emulate the blond girls at school. This memory became the impetus for a ritualistic work mashing black culture stereotypes into a fascinating alter-ego, simultaneously familiar and grotesque. Strongly influenced by the aesthetics of fashion, music videos, queer culture, and comedy, Michel’s powerfully unique style of work is uber-physical, queasily funny, and fiercely contemporary. Yellow Towel was named one of the top shows of 2014 by Time Out New York.
