And And And—Stammering: An Interview

About the event

As part of the exhibition, Alien vs. Citizen, join us for a performance in the format of an interrogation that explores the process one would experience in attempting to become a US citizen. And And And—Stammering: An Interview (2020) is an ongoing performance and installation project that draws upon complex questions of immigration, exclusion, and the performance of belonging. In this event, artists <span style="font-family:arial;font-size:80%;">Hương Ngô and Hồng-Ân Trươngspan directly engage a randomly selected audience member, while also prompting all audience members to imagine their own responses.

This performance will take place on Zoom. Attendees of this event are invited to choose between being part of two levels of participation: a group of visible witnesses with the possibility of being the selected interviewee, or a group of anonymous observers.

And And And—Stammering: An Interview is part of Alien vs. Citizen, an exhibition organized by Interim Senior Curator January Parkos Arnall with Line Ajan, Barjeel Global Fellow. This performance is organized by Marguerite Wynter, Curatorial Assistant, with the Performance and Public Practice team.
