AAC

SATURDAY, JULY 15, 1-5 pm

Williams Pope.L’s Black Factory stops by the Arlington Arts Center. (This is the only stop scheduled in the Washington, DC area!)

The AAC is honored to host the Black Factory, a mobile performance piece/ social service experiment by William Pope.L, an award-winning performance artist. The Black Factory requires audience participation to do its work. Come on by! During the performance, the crew will feed you, cajole you, and provoke you. All in the name of forging a new dialogue about race and community in America. And don’t forget to browse Twice Sold products in the Black Factory gift shop. 100% of all proceeds sold is donated to an Arlington social service charity.

William Pope.L is a multi-disciplinary installation and performance artist, a 2005 Guggenheim Fellow, the subject of a New York Times Arts & Leisure cover story, and has been proclaimed the Friendliest Black Artist in America.

Don’t miss a chance to catch the Black Factory in Arlington on Saturday, July 15, from 1-5. Call for more information: 703.248.6800. Free.
