A conversation on process and study with diasporic artists Marie Alarcón (WOO '18, ACG '09), Petra Floyd, Naya, Wit López (ACG '18), and Jennifer Turnbull (ACG '09) of SWARM. 

Multimedia artist Marie Alarcón is the selected 2018 Leeway x Icebox artist-in-residence. Within this residency, they have curated exhibitions on diaspora, migration, and belonging, creating a space for fruitful public conversations on topics that affect all people of color in the United States. Organized around a performance by Marie as Papi Leon in collaboration with multimedia performance group SWARM and new work by multidisciplinary artist Petra Floyd, the exhibit will ask questions about race, belonging, history and trauma using artifacts and artworks to activate the space. The series aims to explore the many processes that QTPOC artists use to work through diasporic experience. 

Performance will include Papi Leon, a diasporic demigod, who uses incantations to call to the lost children of multiculturalism and Petra Floyd, who will present a performative lecture about first-generation dance anxieties. The culminating performance will feature an evening performances by Marie Alarcón in collaboration with SWARM, Petra Floyd, Wit López, and Naya.
