FRIDAY, 9/29 @ GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE
Boryana Rossa and Oleg Mavromatti are artists who live between Europe and United States. They migrate from one place to another, sharing the life of uncertainty and precariousness of all peoples who have left their countries. They have spent time at migrant and refugee services, not to merely observe the life of "the refugees”, but to deal with their own matters. Using perhaps beautiful but painful iconography, involving the most spectacular item connected to current refugee survival - namely the golden emergency blankets - mixed with typical USA symbols of racial hostility, in this performance they make a wider anti-xenophobic statement starting with the local and expanding it to the international.
SATURDAY, 9/30 @ KINGSBRIDGE ARMORY
Sisterin' in Procession will serve as an act of subversion, a tool of discussion and a historical record of the resilience of working-class communities in The Bronx and beyond.
SUNDAY, 10/1 @ TRANS-PECOS
WILD EmbeddingS presents ANTI-THERAPY at an all ages / dry venue. Traditional therapy is a scam. Pay money to spill your guts to a stranger? Let them tell you what to do? No gracias. Psychoanalyze this: don't trust the doctors. Trust US instead!
