All the Rage addresses everyday pleasure as well as the persistent condition of racism in the USA--a time marked both by recurring police violence and intense artistic creativity. At its core dwells the 'Living in the Abattoir' series, set in an alternate yet familiar world, in which people of color live in an abattoir as both workers and meat. All the Rage addresses the contemporary realities of life in the USA from a variety of perspectives: being a black person, an immigrant, a woman, and queer. The title All the Rage simultaneously invokes both anger at ongoing, systemic violence and the frivolity of something that is, perhaps temporarily, "trending.
