Will Rawls presents a new interdisciplinary work, [siccer], that addresses the relationship between blackness and image-making through a live performance accompanied by a video installation on the museum’s first floor.

Encompassing dance, photography, and sound, [siccer] experiments with stop-motion, a filmmaking technique in which subjects incrementally shift positions between photographs to produce the illusion of movement. Throughout the performance, an automated camera snaps an image every few seconds while the intervals between shutter clicks offer brief interludes when the camera fails to capture the dancers’ movements. As the performers improvise during these gaps between photographs, they rescript the terms through which blackness and queerness are made visible. [siccer] is also being presented as a video installation on the museum’s first floor throughout the duration of the Frictions suite, beginning on March 22.

Frictions is organized by Tara Aisha Willis, Curator in Performance, with Laura Paige Kyber, Curatorial Associate in Performance. Additional support on Will Rawls, [siccer], provided by Nolan Jimbo, Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow.

This work includes live performances and a video installation on the museum’s first floor that runs from March 22 through June 18, 2023.

The performance is improvised and may include some swearing and sexual innuendo.

CART captioning, ASL, and audio description will be provided for the April 29 performance.
