Autumn Knight: Documents
Krannert Art Museum
April 4, 2019
Following her 2017 solo exhibition In Rehearsal, and on the occasion of the release of the exhibition’s catalog, New York-based performance artist Autumn Knight returns to KAM for Documents, a public reading of documentation that serves to authenticate and legitimize citizenship.
The reading is interactive in conversation with the audience, who together address embodied specificities of race, class, and gender to contest whether these categories accurately reflect the bodies they are meant to represent. Documents underlines how different audiences and relationships to power may influence this reading.
