In an intimate performance, featuring singer/songwriter/actress Kiara Lanier, Stokes juxtaposes family safety and mass incarceration. This is a must see. Thelonious just made history, as the first, youngest African-American to be accepted and attending the school program at the world-renowned Florence Academy of Art in Italy. Kiara is the quintessential essense of a songbird butterfly, songwriter and actress, recently featured on Empire, The Chi, and American Idol. The raw warehouse landscape of Silent Funny will be transformed into a landscape of American civilization versus systematic injustice. Using the concept of hospitality, Stokes will unveil this conceptual ground, showing the first pieces of Thelonious Stokes' Caged Black Paintings/Thelonious Stokes' White Fenced Paintings.
