A performance by Hot Hands Collective: Kiowa Hammons and Daonne Huff with special guest Steven Bartashev
Tickets: $15

The Glass Eye is a multi-disciplinary performance piece for voice, music, and film concerning the disembodiment of the black body through police violence and acts of protest to combat it—witnessed through the camera eye. The work was originally performed in 2016; at the height of protest against seemingly endless incidents of documented police brutality against African Americans. The Glass Eye (revisited) reconsiders and re-contextualizes the previous work two years later: amidst continual abuses and unjust incarceration by law enforcement; the propagation of white nationalism and islamophobia; and discrimination against immigrants. In opposition to this cultural plight, the piece further examines how acts of protest and civil disobedience continues to serve as a voice of dissent and a call for change. And as with the original piece, The Glass Eye (revisited) explores how these dichotomies are being addressed within our media saturated cultural environment–in which the camera plays the role of the ever-present witness and a tool of manipulation for an authoritarian justice system.

The performance will be preceded with films by Aaron Turner

JACK has a portable wheelchair ramp that it can put out for attendees who need assistance getting into the space (which is a three-inch rise from sidewalk level). Please e-mail us at info AT jackny.org to let us know that you might be coming and we'll make sure it will be installed for the performance.

We have two bathrooms, one of which is large, but not large enough to be in accordance with national accessibility guidelines (it doesn't have a 60" turning diameter).
