"Family Dollar"

The Nasher Sculpture Center announces its first off-site Nasher Public project, "Family Dollar," presented in partnership with Artstillery, an experimental performance nonprofit that empowers marginalized communities. For five years, Artstillery has been working with the residents of West Main Street, a tiny neighborhood with a long history in West Dallas, documenting their stories and working to save important structures that are quickly disappearing due to rapid gentrification in the area. "Family Dollar" (2016–2021), is an extensive archiving effort that includes documentary film; architectural preservation; and live, immersive, oral history-based performances that are also recorded for on-demand digital and VR experiences. "Family Dollar" represents an innovative form of performance art that starts with community engagement to bring untold oral histories to light. The performances are held outdoors, taking place in three interpretive shotgun homes, and visitors are encouraged to walk around the buildings and follow several stories simultaneously unfolding in each home.
