SOH CHO 9 WHEN WE GROW UP sunday august 27 6:30 p sharp! doors open at 6:00
SOH CHO 9 is our closing class of 2017. WHEN WE GROW UP will be a commemoration of each individual and of our founding effort to 'shine the spotlight on our talented peers.' Jamaican artist Ebony G Patterson is this session’s inspiration. As she eloquently explains about her encrusted artwork, 'I’m hoping by slowing the viewer down in these experiences, to pull the viewer in to see further and raise questions about how we engage in the act of looking...' we hope to commemorate each attendee's lived experiences of surviving and thriving, through storytelling and story-listening, that may otherwise go unseen.
While answering a question about your identity assigned to you by the chance of Spin the Bottle, your peers will draw a snapshot of you in that present moment. We will use portraiture as a tool of commemoration and encourage documenting heard words and sentences that stand out to you.
‘Whoever you are. Wherever you are… I’m starting to think we’re a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention. My loved ones are everything to me here.' [Frank Ocean]
