Due to unforeseen circumstances our presentation of Together/Far Apart has been postponed.
Under the direction of curator and performance artist Monica L. Williams, Together/Far Apart features three couples who share their life journeys as artists through performance. Each artist couple works to maintain healthy family relationships all while making great art and balancing demanding lives. In their own genre, they explore the challenges of time, space, and distance as they relate to the hustle of work/love and loving each other. Featured artists include DJ Reborn/DJ Amir, Dominique Morrisseau/JKeys, and Rokafella/Kwikstep.
