Going Spaces and Other Worlding is the culmination of two years of residencies, research, and experimentation. Through film, performance, and sculptural installation, Tripp uses forms of reenactment and rehearsal to conjure alternative modes of freedom, utopia, and civil disobedience at the crossroads of globalization and cultural hybridity.

This exhibition, curated by Emelie Chhangur, is presented by AGYU. For more information, please visit agyu.art

Interstellar Sleep, a related exhibition of Tripp’s work curated by Tairone Bastein and Candice Hopkins, is on view at 259 Lake Shore Blvd E.

Equipped with a poetic mind, her work shines a light on forms of freedom, utopia, and civil disobedience at the crossroads of globalization, climate change, and the cosmic spheres where her collaborative pieces seek to transcend social imaginaries and fixed identities. Her work has been shown internationally in museum venues and galleries, including a vast selection of film festivals.
