NICOLE GOODWIN [NYC] MY PROJECT
3-hour solo performance @ 7:00 pm
This week we have a special 3-hour solo performance by New York City-based, 2019 Franklin Furnace Grant recipient Nicole Goodwin
NICOLE GOODWIN My Project
MY PROJECT consists of an examination of anti-blackness along with the uncovering of my mixed race genealogy through body performance and the re-imagining of my skin completion. The flour represents "whiteness" as a "pure, concentrated" form of erasure and micro-aggression both historic and societal. The body movements represent both the need to wrestle with negative emotions as well as physically "ousting" the internalized racism.
