LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island opens Memorial Day weekend with three FREE, art-filled days including the opening of LMCC’s 2017 summer exhibition, A Supple Perimeter by Kameelah Janan Rasheed. In A Supple Perimeter, Rasheed begins with her research into ecology, entropy, and black traditions of experimental writing to construct an immersive ecosystem of texts, videos, projections, objects, and sound experiments that comment on selective legibility and the tension between public and private selves.

Free and open to the public, the exhibition will change over time, inviting audiences to both experience the evolution of the space in person and encounter a new installation upon multiple visits. In addition, Rasheed’s If/Then (2014-present) and Questions (2017) will be installed on the façade of the historic Fort Jay Theater on Governors Island.
