Selfies by Todd Shalom & Niegel Smith

In fashion, there's armor. Through devices, we locate, shield and shoot. If we toss this stuff, how will we re-find ourselves and each other? Well, let’s start from scratch. And sniff.

Join Todd Shalom & Niegel Smith for a mostly indoor participatory walk. A rite that roots and wrests the canvas of self. Yeah, we’re going there. And we’ll be getting naked. And we know that’s cliché. And that our “we” is different than yours. Oh lord. Come with. Undress. Together. And check yourself.

This walk holds 12 people and is commissioned by The Prelude Festival. All advance tickets are now sold out but there will be tickets available on-site in the lobby once the festival begins.

Artist note:
Asking walk participants to completely disrobe is extremely vulnerable for everyone, us included. Though we are aware that this choice might deter some from attending, our intention is to revel in that vulnerability in order to better investigate our relationships to our bodies and each other. We hope you'll join us!
