Justin Randolph Thompson - Meet Me in the Bottoms: Press Kit
Meet Me in the Bottoms is an installation and performance that addresses dismantled hierarchies through the lens of the architecture of theatre space, the propagandic employment of sound and the socio-political implications associated with the shoeshine trade. The work revolves around a social pact formed by shoe shiners, the concept of putting our best things away awaiting deliverance, the subversion of sound as background and the elevation of the viewer.
The project is realized in collaboration with: Bradly Dever Treadaway, Jason R. Thompson and Stefanie Nelson
Two performances accompany the exhibition: Thursday December 6th and Friday December 7th.
