For Frieze New York 2022, Artists Space will showcase a new work by devynn emory, a choreographer, dance artist, body worker, ceremonial guide, acute care and hospice nurse working with COVID patients. As a mixed-race Lenape/Blackfoot/settler transgender artist, they are known for drawing on these identities for performances that hold space for liminal bodies bridging multiple planes. 

As part of emory’s performance, titled Grandmother Cindy, the audience will be invited to create a supportive witnessing of Grandmother's medical care. 

A free ticketed performance will take place on Wednesday, May 18 at 7:30pm. Book via Artists Space.
