In this Issue...
The artists in this issue use performance as a tool to explore personal identity and as a weapon in a larger fight for social justice. In the work of Wilmer Wilson IV, Ursula Johnson, Kevin Beasley, and Jefferson Pinder, the body becomes a material--a living sculpture to be directed and manipulated into forms that re-examine human relations. Abigail DeVille, who sets sculptural objects loose in public situations, and Jennifer Wen Ma, who uses moving sculptures as a foil for narrative staging, both add a theatrical flair. For all of these artists, history serves as an important collaborator; and for many of them, sound is equally essential. Their works may educate, but what matters is the intimacy--the transfer of action and, by extension, of empathy--that results from multi-sensory points of contact.
