Jacolby Satterwhite: We Are In Hell When We Hurt Each Other- Opening Reception

Friday, January 20, 2023

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Created in 2020, We Are in Hell When We Hurt Each Other is a monumental video that translates the artist’s dance movements through digital bodysuits into animated Black fembot forms and other various creatures/humanoid elements. Bringing together disparate practices of vogueing, 3D animation, and drawing, Satterwhite’s eye-popping digital meditation explores the movement of his own queer body while also evoking ballroom culture, popular culture, and sociopolitical tenets.
