Lydia Bell and guest curator Shin Otake have invited rapper, R&B singer, and painter DonChristian Jones to respond in words and music to Eiko's work on March 8. Jones' performance will be followed by a conversation with Jones and Eiko about the role of performance in addressing violence, anger, and identity.
