Movement Workshop with Brendan Fernandes & Paige Fraser
DePaul Art Museum is pleased to welcome dancer Paige Fraser, best known for her work in Broadway’s The Lion King, with returning artist Brendan Fernandes, whose solo exhibition was held at DPAM in 2018 prior to his 2019 Whitney Biennial debut. Fernandes’s research delves into the colonialist histories of ballet and the rituals associated with African masks found in various museum collections throughout the United States. Together, Fernandes and Fraser will present audiences with an impactful history lesson, alongside a series of body movements and practices that can be done from the comfort of your own home to get you critically thinking and moving simultaneously.
Presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with the departments of African & Black Diaspora Studies and the History of Art & Architecture at DePaul University.
