In her exhibition “I’m here to entertain you, but only during my shift,” artist Joiri Minaya continues her “Containers” series, which looks at the female subject in relation to tropical landscapes. Curated by Corrine Y. Gordon, the installation is on view at Camera Club of New York’s Baxter St venue through September 30. “I’m here to entertain you, but only during my shift” moves beyond photography to include video, text, and for the first time, collage. The show has been named from a line in one of Minaya’s original scripts, written during the formative process for the exhibition, highlighting the audience’s role as an active viewer while the subjects take on the role of performer. – Whitewall Art
