Crosscut Arts Salon: The Color of Race

UPCOMING

Thursday, April 28, 2016 - 8:00pm to 10:30pm

This event has expired.

Crosscut’s second curated Arts Salon series features artists working across media who explore key challenges in our community.
 
The salon will look at one of the most pressing and relevant subjects of today: race. What does it mean to be an artist of color in Seattle? How does a specific art form lend itself to issues of racial identity and ethnicity? How do you create work for a majority white audience — or should you? Registration for the show is required. 
 
The evening will feature performances as well as presentations by all five artists:
 
Geo Quibuyen a.k.a. Prometheus Brown is a Cali-born, Hawaii-raised, Seattle-based second-generation Filipino American rapper.
 
Donald Byrd, a TONY-nominated and Bessie Award-winning choreographer, is the Artistic Director of Spectrum Dance Theater (since 2002). 
 
Rose Cano, a graduate of Cornish, is co-founder and Artistic Director of eSe Teatro: Seattle Latinos Take Stage since 2010.  She is a bilingual actor, playwright, director and lyricist. 
 
C. Davida Ingram is a conceptual artist whose work creates counter-narratives about race and gender via social practice projects, performances, and installations. 
 
Tracy Rector (Choctaw/Seminole) is the Executive Director and co-founder of Longhouse Media. In the past 11 years, she has facilitated work with over 3,000 youth, has made 360 short films and is currently in production of her third feature documentary.
