Event Description: Score goes Pop! with Artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed & Morgan Bassichis Come make a pop song! This workshop, led by Kameelah Janan Rasheed and guest artist Morgan Bassichis, interprets found text from the exhibition Scoring the Stacks into song lyrics arranged and performed at the end of the session with Bassichis on piano. Think Mad Libs meets karaoke. Morgan Bassichis is a performance artist who draws on stand-up comedy, music, and historical archives to explore questions about power and freedom. Recent shows include "Damned If You Duet" at the Kitchen (November 2018), "More Protest Songs!" at Danspace Project (April 2018), and "The Faggots & Their Friends Between Revolutions: The Musical" at the New Museum (Fall 2017), a collaborative adaptation of the 1977 underground queer fairytale-manifesto written by Larry Mitchell and Ned Asta, as part of the exhibition “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon.” Morgan has performed at Artists Space, the Hirshhorn Museum, Poetry Project, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, the Whitney Museum, and MoMA PS1 as part of Greater New York 2015. Morgan's essays on queer politics and prison abolition have been featured in the Radical History Review, Captive Genders, and other anthologies. Kameelah Janan Rasheed: Scoring the Stacks is made possible by the Katowitz Radin Endowment, women.nyc and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
