Prayer Closet:


The Body, Black Congregation, and Fugitivity





Prayer Closet Activation w/Lionel Frazier White III
September 30 @ 6 PM
RSVP

The exhibition is open to all during our regular open hours.
We kindly ask that this event be a Black-only congregation.


About the exhibition:
Audre Lorde says the erotic is firmly rooted in the power of our unexpressed or unrecognized feeling. The closet is a place of meditation and suppression. The queer closet considers the things we can not openly express. The prayer closet is the physical or metaphorical private space where we go to pray and seek God. Prayer Closet: The Body, Black Congregation, and Fugitivity considers how these two closets fold into one another. Prayer Closet thinks about the Black sanctified church as the intersections of race, sexuality, pleasure, and constraint.
