In conjunction with the exhibition HEAD TRAUMA: From the Outer Rim by kendallprojects, 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, S.C., presents a panel discussion, on Wednesday, June 26, 6 p.m. The panel will be moderated by Chris White, film producer, director, screenwriter and actor.

In this exhibition, Jason Kendall, also known as kendallprojects, addresses American Football culture by exploring themes of identity construction, masculinity, violence in sports and conditional self-worth based on physical performance.

The panel will focus on the dangers of head trauma in American Football, the self-destructive nature exhibited by many athletes, as well as arts ability to raise awareness of the issue. How has American football culture addressed the risk of brain injury and the physical toll of the sport on the brains and minds of athletes?
