The Bandanna Quilt Performance is a live quilting ritual which will use poetry, movement, and music to activate student artwork created in The Black School’s summer 2017 workshops at The Brotherhood Sister Sol and various other locations. Live quilting and an installation of the quilt will be used as a site for a series of performances. The piece will be a co-creation with an ensemble of poets, artists, and musicians facilitated by The Black School.
Commissioned by The Laundromat Project in partnership with The Brotherhood Sister Sol.
