Seizing on a dynamic moment in DC performance art, this exhibition is the culmination of Wilmer Wilson IV’s performance art series Henry “Box” Brown: FOREVER and is complemented by a series of forums that explore the aftermath of performance art. On display is a rotating selection of documentation and detritus from the Henry “Box” Brown: FOREVER performances. Inspired by the historic figure Henry “Box” Brown, a 19th century slave, who mailed himself to freedom, Wilmer Wilson IV used his own body to examine what freedom means.
