Chelsea's Trivia Night
As part of her participation in the exhibition Another Idea, Chelsea A. Flowers presents Chelsea's Trivia Night, a live streamed game show airing June 18th at 7:00 PM CST via Zoom.
Life is wild right now, first, Corona put us in a time out, and now we are reminding people that Black lives do indeed matter. With the multitude of resistance going on, Chelsea’s Trivia Night is here to remind you that joy is a form of resistance, Black laughter is a form of resistance. Inspired by Urban Dictionary, Chelsea wants to know if you can decipher the “True or False” statement, “Fill in the Blank”, and Identify correct answers to earn points. Do you like trivia? Can you do it for the culture? If so Chelsea’s Trivia Night is for you. ~ Chelsea A. Flowers
