Drawing from her training in theater and the psychology of group dynamics, New York–based artist Autumn Knight makes performances that reshape perceptions of race, gender, and authority. Drawing from her NOTHING#31 series—an investigation into the Italian concept of “dolce far niente,” the sweetness of doing nothing—Knight performs two works at REDCAT.

Presented on Thursday, March 15 and Friday, March 16, part one, a bar, is a social experiment transforming the theater space into a host club in which, guided by Knight, the audiences undertake the task of creating the optimal conditions for temporary but meaningful companionship, desire, and connection with their fellow audience members.

Presented on Sunday, March 17, part two, A BLUFF, is just that. Using her training as an improviser and the inexhaustible possibilities each audience member brings, Knight alone on stage responds improvisationally to the space, its architecture, its audience, pointedly launching from the potentiality—both the sweetness and desolation—of nothingness.

 

Please note: NOTHING#31: a bar contains mature content.

Black, Brown & Beige

In 1943 Duke Ellington performed for the first time the symphony Black, Brown and Beige at Carnage Hall. Ellington described it as, “a parallel to the history of the American Negro”. The title of the symphony referred to the mistaken assertion that African-Americans can be categorized by a single color. In his tittle, Ellington was highlighting an experience that was broad in spectrum and experience. Conversely, Latinos also share the same generalizations as African- Americans as evidenced by the various…

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Speaking to Falling Seeds

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist whose practice considers Black image making as a site of protest, contestation, affirmation, and possibility. At CAAM, Fazlalizadeh will present a series of portraits of Black Angelenos wheat-pasted across the atrium’s monumental walls. Based on photographs and conversations that took place this spring while the artist was living in Los Angeles, the portraits ask how safety is inferred, built, and felt for the city’s Black residents.
