Raja Feather Kelly : HYSTERIA

Lobby: Dec 9 & 10 @ 7pm EST
Virtual: Dec 11 & 12 @ 7pm EST



HYSTERIA, a performance and installation piece debuting in the Ford Foundation Live Gallery on December 9 and 10, and virtually on December 11 and 12, continues Raja Feather Kelly’s study of pop culture and its displacement of queer Black subjectivity. Picking up where his 2018 performance, UGLY, left off, Kelly resituates himself as a glamourous, extraterrestrial entity—both alien to the world and wholly consuming its pop cultural byproducts. HYSTERIA marks the collapse of fiction into fact, tracking the subsequent inner turmoil, confusion, and mania that Kelly sets out to exorcise.
