About the Performance
Maggie Lawson is creating a new performance-video work that will premiere at the AutoUpdate reception on October 4. Go Home is a performative lecture that works both as a problematic directive and a sacred pilgrimage through generations of the artist’s chosen and anointed family. She culls images and tweets from the news cycle’s daily barrage to demonstrate the personal as political. Lawson will use her ties to Cincinnati and her community’s lineage to examine how possible and improbable coming home actually is.
