Hope Street

A series of social engagement projects kicked off as part of an exhibit in which a service was offered, and in exchange of fulfilling the contract, I was to be given a drink of my choice at a Hope Street venue of my choice. 

The services offered – my tasks – varied widely and included taking guitar lessons, playing pool, drawing portraits, a choice between listening to completion a growing Spotify playlist or having a conversation about race, and having to prove reality was real. Coming up with the one question a curator should ask before working with a social engagement artist, going on a date with a woman’s male persona to see if he was gay, and listening to someone talk about their feelings, were some of the more creative exchanges.
