What Is Your Body Worth?

Artist Monét Noelle Marshall has been working intensely on a new three-part performance art project: “Buy It Call It.” It explores the price people put on their bodies and souls and how capitalism uniquely impacts women and people of color.

To create the experiential art trilogy, Noelle Marshall dug deep into the strength and power of her own body. Marshall joins host Frank Stasio to speak about the second piece in the trilogy called ”Buy My Body And Call It A Ticket,” in which she will invite visitors to move through a space scattered with art and performances that address issues of body shame, trauma and race through the lense of the carnival.

Buy My Body And Call It A Ticket” runs from Friday, June 8 through Saturday, June 16 at The Durham Fruit & Produce Company in Durham.
