To Name An Other is special performance, part of Jeffrey Gibson’s exhibition Time Carriers at Esker Foundation showing until December 20, 2019.

50 volunteer performers who self-identify as a person of color, LGBTQ, and/or Indigenous or Native Americans are brought together for a drumming event to give names to our current political climate.

Nudity in performance can be a challenge or a provocation. Here, skin is empowering... This bold and exceptional new work enlivens sensations and provides a moment to recognize one another’s humanity.
— Philip Szporer, The Dance Current, 2016
