Whitney Museum of American Art
Demystifying the Myth of the “Urban Pioneer”

Performance by LaToya Ruby Frazier
W
ith Tony Buba, Sharon Zukin, and Damian Catera
Friday, May 11, 2012 at 7:30 pm
Admission: Free or “pay-what-you-wish” on Fridays.

“Photographer and media artist LaToya Ruby Frazier uses the conventions of social documentary to probe and upend traditional narratives of urban growth and the triumph of industry. Exposing the underbelly of corporate practices—rapid de-industrialization and outsourcing, environmental negligence, and inner-city gentrification—Frazier’s work examines the crises of postindustrial communities and the racial divisions wrought by capital. Tonight she is joined by filmmaker Tony Buba, sociologist Sharon Zukin, and composer and sound artist Damian Catera for a multimedia exploration of the myth of the “urban pioneer” within her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania.”

This performance is being presented in conjunction with the Whitney Biennial 2012, which includes LaToya Ruby Frazier, on view until May 27, 2012.
