Students of Booker T. Washington, The Winston School & Good Shepherd Episcopal School

Group Exhibition

Students from three Dallas schools—Booker T. Washington, The Winston School and Good Shepherd Episcopal School—present new artworks and performances that reflect AURORA 2018’s theme of ‘Future Worlds.’ Students from Booker T. Washington host the event Dead Poet Slam: Things that Still Haunt Us, during which they read aloud poems by late poets such as Richard Hugo, Sylvia Plath, Langston Hughes and Elizabeth Bishop. Students from The Winston School present a series of mannequin-like figures constructed from electronic devices, primarily analog items such as VHS and cassette players, and selectively chosen articles of clothing; the group of figures is meant to represent different archetypes of the modern era. Students at the Good Shepard Episcopal School have created A Structure for Future Visions, which comprises a large series of stacked boxes, each filled with an individual student’s aesthetic interpretation of their vision for the future. Some of these visions include: levitating cars, teleportation, a planet of superheroes and ray guns that give new life.
