Artist Project/ Proyecto del Artista
The Brown Man Experience
12:00pm – 3:00pm, Lobby
Join artist Michael Paul Britto as he interviews and photographs visitors as part of his ongoing project, The Brown Man Experience! Each participant will be asked to write something about him/her-self on a small dry erase board drawing from his/her own personal experiences, and is encouraged to dispel a prejudice, challenge a pre-conceived notion or confront a stereotype that was based purely on race. The participant will later be photographed  holding the dry erase board against his/her chest. The rounded corner white board, and handwritten self-defining statements act as a strong symbolic contrast to the square, black, police mug shot board containing numbers rather than a name. The participant is also asked to share something specific about him/her-self that he believes is not acknowledged within our current social, economic and political systems.

Te invitamos a participar en el proyecto, The Brown Man Experience, del artista Michael Paul Britto mientras entrevista y fotografía a participantes como parte de su actual proyecto. Cada participante escribirá algo sobre si mismo en un “dry erase board” tomando en cuenta sus experiencias personales y es invitado a desmentir nociones preconcebidas o estereotipos basados puramente en “raza”. Luego, el participante será fotografiado sosteniendo el cartel en sus manos contra el pecho. El “dry erase board” actúa de una manera simbólica contrastando el cuadro en negro que una persona sostiene durante una foto policial.
