The “I’m Tired” Project Closing Reception
Join us for the closing reception of The “I’m Tired” Project by British artists Paula Akpan and Harriet Evans. Their exhibit highlights the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggressions, assumptions & stereotypes and incorporates pictures taken right here at HVCCA with local and regional residents who shared their stories. Performance is fused with written word as each of the participants formulate statements completing the phrase ‘I’m tired of…” The statement can address absolutely any kind of discrimination that the individual has personally experienced or feels passionate about. The artist duo then transcribe the individual’s text onto his/her bare back, excising the tension through this very physical act. Photography documents the final product, serving as a personal and communal diary of purification and absolution. All photographs in the “I’m Tired” Project exhibit at HVCCA were taken by Robert Olsson.
All participants from the photo shoots have one last chance to purchase copies of their prints from the exhibit!
