Princess is a performance art duo, a collaboration between Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill that uses music as the backbone of a multi-disciplinary practice. Princess explores queerness and the concept of masculinity. Simultaneously gay, straight, queer, masculine and feminine, Princess embodies the fluidity and coherence between the seemingly contradictory. Princess was formed in 2004 in the Chicago DIY Performance space Texas Ballroom.

Ballots and Bullets
Sunday 1:30pm

1:30pm Reception

2:30pm Program

How much do you know about July 23, 1968–a critical night in Cleveland history– and what followed? Did you know that Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X delivered important, galvanizing speeches from the same pulpit in Cleveland? 

Join the author and learn how these events provide the basis for his 2018 book, Ballots & Bullets: Black Power Politics and Urban Guerilla Warfare in 1968, which examines the revolutionary calls for addressing racism through guerrilla warfare in America’s streets.

Jibade-Khalil Huffman
Performance Program
Sunday 3:00pm

Please join us for a multi-media performance by artist Jibade-Khalil Huffman, whose video Figuration B (2017), was presented in February as part of the Double Takes exhibition program. This dynamic performance includes the choreography of sound, video, and a poetic reading by Huffman that explore how images and video from popular media shape and alter our world. Like much of his work Confessional Poetry incisively re-frames images and sound from a variety of film and television media to explore an implicit and at times confounding image based language.

Thomas Frontini and Cornelia Lauf
Thursday 7:00pm

FREE & Open to all

Never underestimate the power of first impressions. During her Cleveland studio visits as our 2016 Visiting Curator, Cornelia Lauf, who also curated moCa’s exhibition Wall to Wall: Carpets by Artists, met and reviewed the new work of artist Thomas Frontini (1967, Ontario, Canada; lives and works in Cleveland). This first meeting led to further conversations over several years, resulting in the artist’s new monograph.
