Danielle Brathwaite–Shirley Performance

A new performance by current artist in residence, Danielle Brathwaite–Shirley as part of Open House 2022.

Artist and game developer Brathwaite-Shirley weaves the lived experiences of Black Trans people into the fabric of their fictional space. Through animation, sound, and performance, they pay reverence to the many creative narratives of “those living, those who have passed, and those who have been forgotten”. 

Much like a Black Trans archive, their practice cements the posterity of Black Trans people’s existence as: “throughout history, Black queer and Trans people have been erased from our archives. Because of this, it is necessary not only to archive our existence but also the many creative narratives we have used and continue to use to share our experiences.”

Brathwaite–Shirley’s residency is supported by Meta Open Arts
