Question Bridge: Black Males: This nationally touring trans-media exhibition/discussion between black men about black male identity. The men are in videos projected on a wall. It looks like they're talking to each other, back and forth, chewing on one question for a while until somebody throws out a new one. Each man gets to talk until he's finished, no interruptions. Occasionally, they all laugh at the same time. But they're not in one room. Each man is in his own video; they were filmed separately, more than 150 of them, in eight cities around the nation, and most of them have never met. The piece was created by the artists Hank Willis Thomas, Chris Johnson, Beyeté Ross Smith, and Kamal Sinclair.
