Shelter In Place Art Exhibit
Shelter in Place is an immersive environment initially created by Adam W. McKinney that deconstructs elements of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot to inquire into the effects of anti-Black racial violence and historical trauma, and the possibilities of liberation through art and ritual.
The work began with McKinney's learning of the 1921 racial terror lynching of Mr. Fred Rouse, whose murder at the hands of a white mob in Fort Worth, TX has largely been forgotten. With few historical archives to draw upon, the artist collaborated with Diné photographer Will Wilson and Director Daniel Banks to stage tintypes wherein McKinney dressed as Mr. Rouse in traumatic sites associated with the atrocity.
