For her first official solo show in June 2018, the artist Ayana Evans was dressed in a skintight, neon green tiger-stripe catsuit, doing jumping jacks or push-ups; then she challenged audience members to get down on the ground and do the push-ups with her. The audience at Medium Tings gallery in Brooklyn consisted of several artists, college friends and former students she had taught at Brown. The mood was jubilant Ms. Evans gave everyone a hug at the end. In later performances she wore a floor-length gown.
