Please join us for the opening of the inaugural Ford Foundation Gallery exhibition, Perilous Bodies, with a special performance by Vanessa German. Vanessa's visual and performance work contend with the power and fragility of the human spirit. She has pioneered a performance style she calls “Spoken Word Opera,” which brings all the drama and theatricality of traditional opera to intimate performances and contemporary themes through a dynamic hybrid of spoken word poetry, hip hop, storytelling, music, and movement.
Around the world, we make grants that support the visionary people and organizations who work to challenge inequality in all its forms
