Over the duration of the evening, Baczynski-Jenkins will stage "Us Swerve" outside the gallery premises. The work is a choreographic score performed by three actors circling each other on rollerblades while reciting re-mixed and re-assembled lines of poetry by Essex Hemphill, Eileen Myles, Langston Hughes and others.

Zuzanna Bartoszek and Juliana Huxtable will separately present a performative reading addressing the show's content from their most recent work.
