Buy My Body and Call It a Ticket 

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through June 16 2018
Price: Pay what you want

Earlier this year, Monét Noelle Marshall premiered the unforgettable first part of her Buy It Call It trilogy. In Buy My Soul and Call It Art, she and her team of local artists created a performance installation that "immerses visitors in the problematic relationship between black art and the arts and entertainment industry," as Kevin J. Rowsey II wrote in his four-and-a-half star INDY review. Moving through a series of tableaux, we experienced a living treatise on the racial inequities—monetary, social, and cultural—to which the local arts world is no more immune than the national one. Now Marshall returns with part two, Buy My Body and Call It a Ticket. As she described the piece to Frank Stasio on The State of Things, it sounds like a thematic continuation of Buy My Soul with a more inward focus. Marshall becomes the ringmaster of a carnival midway, complete with mirror maze and unsettling exhibits. Like its predecessor, you'd call it a funhouse if it weren't so morally serious. A must-see. —Brian Howe
