The Unjust Outcomes: Reproductive Violence on Black Bodies 1800 to Present will bring together social activists from the Black Youth Project’s NYC chapter to increase knowledge about improving reproductive health outcomes for black families. We will explore how past and current socio-political climates impact the health of Black people. The panelists will analyze the unjust health disparities afflicting Black communities ranging from maternal death to failure to thrive to deficits in later life as seen through a reproductive justice lens. Our aim is to engage members of the community and gatekeepers of health information from different backgrounds to discuss collaborative methods of approaching these issues.
Building on recent works that explore the blurring of fact and fiction—specifically in relation to horror as an aesthetic category and genre—David Steans presents a new reading, ‘Gruesome FX’ at Triangle. Ostensibly a sales pitch by ‘Dave’, an employee of make-up effects company Gruesome FX, the work riffs off the format of the pitch, the promotional demo and the technical tutorial, collapsing and frustrating the expectations of each to deliver an elliptical, recursive narrative about simulated bloodletting, performance anxiety, and opportunities for career progression in a small business.
A Meeting with Bill Dietz, Chris Mann, and Hong-Kai Wang If speech is a kind of music, how does that impact politics? At a moment when “rational critical discourse” proves itself ever more dangerously inadequate, the need to rethink the mediation of aesthetics & politics is urgent. We ask: how might we listen to traditions attuned to registers of politics & infrapolitics that Western paradigms, even at their most radical, struggle to hear?
On November 16th, 1980, distinguished philosopher Louis Althusser strangled his wife, Helene Rytman, in their apartment at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. Althusser was declared unfit to stand trial by reason of temporary insanity and was committed to a psychiatric hospital. Upon his release in 1983, he continued writing philosophical essays and auto-biographical texts. Today Althusser remains a respected thinker: his texts written before and after the murder continue to be published and read. Helene, on the other hand, is completely forgotten: in death, as in life, she remains an insignificant woman lost in the shadow of her famous husband.
A series of training workshops created by Tyler Coburn and Ian Hatcher
Remote Viewer engages the “psychic spying” units run by the U.S. government between the 1970s and 1990s. These units tasked people with supposedly exceptional psionic abilities to mentally travel to covert enemy sites, then record what they “viewed” in writing, drawing, and even clay sculpture.

Denniston Hill, The Laundromat Project, and Triangle Arts Association are pleased to present: Chloë Bass: This Is A Film (1.2). Thursday, November 15, 2018
This Is A Film (1.2). is a lecture performance exploring what it means to turn footage into language. Using clips of family home movies found in various online archives, Chloë Bass creates a descriptive piece for the audience to hear and imagine. Where is the film: in the language? in the images that come into each listener’s head? Is it shared between us? What do we see, and how does it make a story?
