Daniel Alexander Jones Weeklong Residency Culminates in Completion of Community Altar (photos)

Daniel Alexander Jones, a Belknap Short-Term Visiting Fellow in the Humanities Council, has collaborated over the past week with Princeton community members to construct an altar centered around the prompt “Ask Your Questions” and rooted in the cultivation of intentional space for inquiry, deep listening, and consideration of traditional practices of presence, particularly those rooted in Black Queer interiorities.

The residency culminated in a final sharing session featuring a dynamic duet between Jones and Dr. Deborah Paredez (Columbia Univ.) entitled “Question/Generation (X)” featuring both artists reading from their work and discussing not only their own questions, but questions born of the week’s invitations, followed by time for celebration.
