Me or You
Submitted by: Chima Chikazunga
Artist's Project Description: This piece was inspired by everything that has transpired towards the end of August 2020. Folks denying who they are and whatâ€™s important. From the social injustices that continue to effect our community, but if I were to put it into a window of space... everything from the George Floyd murder to the passing of the late Chadwick Boseman. In particular a text heâ€™d sent out to another fellow actor that went viral, and I started thinking about this project... the breath project and a mans final moments might be... what would you say to a lifelong friend if they unexpectedly called and they wanted to apologize.
