On the occasion of The Studio Museum in Harlem’s acquisition of WALL (2014–2016), Danspace Project and the Studio Museum are pleased to present Autumn Knight: WALL, a series of sounds, rituals, and actions influenced by The Western Wall or “Wailing Wall” in Jerusalem that reimagine “walls” as psychological, spiritual, and embodied places.
Performed by Knight in collaboration with Natasha L. Turner, WALL features a femme/black-identifying ensemble. This marks the first time the work will be performed in New York. WALLis the first performance to enter the Studio Museum’s collection.
Support for the production and acquisition of WALL is directed by living archives specialist Cori Olinghouse on behalf of The Portal. Autumn Knight: WALL is organized by Eric Booker, Assistant Curator and Exhibition Coordinator, and presented in partnership with Danspace Project.
