In this talk and performance, artist Paul Rucker will share stories from REWIND — an ambitious installation that re-envisions historical events and links them to current issues of race, class, and injustice in America. Rucker will also present an excerpt from Stories from the Trees, a powerful multi-media cello performance that creates a live soundtrack for an animation based on vintage postcards of lynchings. To close the evening, Rucker and ICA Chief Curator Stephanie Smith will discuss the changing roles of artists and cultural institutions.
Rucker’s work will be featured in the ICA’s inaugural exhibition Declaration, opening October 28, 2017.
