April Cultural Cul-de-sac Events
April 6

IUDs, vibrators, intravaginal speakers that play music to gestating fetuses—technologies for women’s bodies are nothing new, but are now part of a rapidly expanding product market. As conversations around the control of women’s bodies become increasingly urgent, Maya Livio will introduce her research on these devices and highlight the vulnerabilities and power relationships they are entangled with. Many of the devices will be on view.

April 13

Dr. Bailey Phelps, a tribal member of the Cherokee Nation, will perform traditional stories from several American Indian tribal sources. Humor and wisdom mingle in tales of such characters as Raven, Coyote, Rabbit and more. The stories amuse and teach listeners of all ages.

April 27

Join BMoCA’s Studio Project for an evening of plant appreciation. Bring your plant(s) for a meet and greet with other attendee’s plants, enjoy plant-based imagery and music, and sip on virgin piña coladas.
