From a family birthday celebration to football and NASCAR tailgates to the political protests of disenfranchised citizens, Life of the Party explores some of the social inequalities–class, race, and gender–that permeate the party atmosphere. Social unrest and dissatisfaction, as well as our continuous search for sociability and community, play an important part in the life of the party and illustrate the complicated interplay between social stability and social change.
