Repository and Repertoire stages a conversation between the archival processes of Jazmine Harris and the haptic choreographies of José Santiago Pérez. They arrange and compose images, objects, attitudes, and issues that articulate historical and social, collective and individual relationships between local knowledge and global narratives. 

In the last year, the feeling of little to no control weighs heavy as we move through ongoing, everyday crisis and loss. In a time of not knowing entirely how to live, how do we process the emerging present and unknown future? How do we be reflexive about a contemporary history as one lives it?

Repository and Repertoire is curated by Stephanie Koch. This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
