On May 1, LaToya Ruby Frazier staged a performance as part of the Biennial 2012 exhibition, in which Youth Insights (YI) teens played a special role. Frazier worked with YI teens as an artist-in-residence while her work was on view and her multimedia performance continued the themes of her work in the Biennial: an exploration of media, advertising, poverty, and identity. After the performance began with a video created by Frazier, YI participants and audience members took part by cutting pieces from a large banner until all that remained was a Martin Luther King, Jr. quotation. YI teens who took part were interviewed for a documentary by the non-profit group Art21. For more information about this event, read a teen’s perspective at the Whit blog.
