at the Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg, MA
Fueled by a common interest in identity, performance artists Alicia, Kelly, and Sara Casilio (identical triplet sisters) and National Geographic photographer Cary Wolinsky joined forces in 2006 to form TRIIIBE - an artistic collective that often expands to include family, friends, and fellow artists. TRIIIBE's painstakingly staged photographs, performances, and videos play up the sameness of the sisters to provoke cultural conversations about gender, equality, and difference, while traversing hot-button social and political issues. Behind each TRIIIBE endeavor is a clever, satirical, and egalitarian exchange of ideas and an elaborate cluster of costumes, wigs, props, and make-up.
The Fitchburg Art Museum is honored to share TRIIIBE: same difference with our audiences and grateful to the artists and Arlette Kayafas of Gallery Kayafas in
Boston, MA for making this show possible.
TRIIIBE: same difference is organized by Curator Mary M. Tinti and Koch Curatorial Fellow Emily M. Mazzola and has been supported by a
grant from the Artist's Resource Trust.
