An erstwhile queer rights lobbyist in Kentucky, Lindsey-Hall’s practice refocuses her advocacy. Never Stop Dancing focuses the conversations concerning queer personhood in the aftermath of the shooting into a deeply humanistic manifestation that recalls the sculptural work of Robert Gober and Kara Walker. Never Stop Dancing looks at how queer nightclubs and bars existed as places of safe harbor while attracting danger just outside. In a post-Pulse reality, Lindsey-Hall asks viewers how we move forward after a harbor has been compromised.
