Autumn Knight Performance at Artpace

Spring 2015 Artist-in-Resident Autumn Knight performs at the opening for her exhibition, She think she Kawaii.

In preparation for her residency at Artpace, Knight visited Japan. Knight told Artpace, “Essentially it sprung out of an interest in Japanese culture I’ve had for a long time. While there, I thought deeply about cultural co-option and appropriation vs. admiration and appreciation. The nuances of American, African-American, and Japanese sensibilities came into focus on this trip. I also wanted to give myself parameters to work within while at Artpace.”
