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.
