important note from Omolara (O/loved/beloved) re: the gallery
O: And look at theatre
Think about the black box set up
I started as a performer and designer for theatre
And I realize now I habitually conceptualize work in a black box
Because theatre’s are black boxes that made create immersive realities
Galleries are white boxes that are made to erase all context except for whiteness
How do gallery walls create and define social capital?
How have white backgrounds facilitated the modern elitist perversion of art?
