Walk meets at the corner of Rockwell Place and Fulton Street in Fort Greene, BK.
Who Is Fort Greene? isan ongoing investigation of the historical and imagined past of Fort Greene, informed by the public square and the often unseen stories of Black residents and women from the 19th century to the present. For this project, Ware collaborated with poet Cyrus Aaron and used historical research and interviews with contemporary and once residents as source material for an interlocking set of artistic experiments including walks, photographic portraits, a poem cycle, video, and public discussion, all meditating on the project’s central question, Who is Fort Greene?.
Who is Fort Greene? was commissioned by BRIC as part of their BRIC Open Festival in April 2019.
