About the program

Poet Claudia Rankine and choreographer Will Rawls discuss the themes of their upcoming MCA Stage work What Remains, which explores how erasure and exposure shape black American life. Associate Curator of Performance Tara Aisha Willis moderates the conversation.

MCA Talks highlight cutting-edge thinking and contemporary art practices across disciplines and are organized by Curator of Public Programs January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator of Public Programs Christy LeMaster.
