Character Descriptions is Josh Greene's latest project involving his family. For this particular work he asked his mother, father, wife, older sister, younger sister and younger brother to each write a detailed description of themselves for the purpose of casting actors to play each of them in a video. In a culture addicted to win/win, "we're No. 1" scenarios, Heather Layton's Preparing To Lose drawings are imagined as counter-narratives to the cultural norm.

Artist's talks begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Hallwalls Cinema.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
