In HAVING A PARTY (HOPE YOU WILL BE THERE), named for a lyric from the 2008 Lee Scratch Perry song, curator Mickael Marman unites himself, Perry, and the artists Isabella Costabile, Deborah Joyce Holman, Shaun Motsi, Jim C. Nedd, and Josiane M.H. Pozi in consideration of their mutual ability to exploit the elastic tensions of the postcolonial-neoliberal condition through the interpretation of inheritance—of objects, behaviors, traumas and debts—and vitally, the refusal of this inheritance. — Olamiju Fajemisin
