16 Days of Activism: Response & Resilience

  • El Barrio's Artspace P.S.109  (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Take Action to promote and thrive towards gender equality:

 All across the globe, girls, women, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals are targeted victims of violence simply because of their gender identity or gender expression. In NYC, although the overall crime rate has declined in recent years, gender -based violence continues to rise. 

 If you are a NY-based non-profit executive/program manager, business owners, faith-based leader or community member who is motivated to create safe spaces for all New Yorkers, this session is for YOU!

 Now is the time for New Yorkers to stand and take action against all forms of gender-based violence. 

16 Days of Activism against gender-based Violence is an annual global campaign that runs from November 25 (International Day to End Violence against Women) through December 10 (International Human Rights Day). The campaign raises awareness about the far reaching consequences of gender-based violence, galvanizes government, community, corporate, and philanthropic sectors to dialogue and develop strategies to eliminate gender-based violence.

To learn more about how you and your organization can join the 16 Days Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign, join us opening night November 28th from 6-9pm at El Barrio's Artspace P.S.109

In The Name Of... Exhibition as part of FUERZAFest 2018!
May
9
to May 23

In The Name Of... Exhibition as part of FUERZAFest 2018!

Under the title: “In the name of…”, this year FUERZAfest multi-media exhibit curated by Richard Morales - grows out of the belief that art dismantles stereotypes and builds connections. Each artist in this exhibit helps shed light on different stories from the frontlines of their lives and those close to them. Intimacy, social criticism, civic empowerment, and cultural celebration are just a few of the threads running through the works. These queer artists from New York, Latin America, and the Caribbean thus use their art to spur thought, encourage self-expression, and catalyze social transformation.

Opening Night : Wednesday May 9th | 5:30-7:30pm | Julia de Burgos Art Center, 1680 Lexington Ave NYC

Come join me and the other amazing artists for a great night!

Hotel XX Exhibition | Spring/Break Art Show
Mar

to Mar 12

Hotel XX Exhibition | Spring/Break Art Show

  • 4 Times Square (Entrance at 140 West 43rd Street) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Untitled Space is pleased to present “(Hotel) XX” a special project curated by Indira Cesarineat this year’s edition of SPRING/BREAK Art Show taking place from March 6th to March 12th in New York City. Known for being one of the world’s most innovative art fairs, SPRING/BREAK is an annual experimental platform for independent curators to exhibit works by emerging and mid-career artists. This year’s edition, which will feature over 100 curators, revolves around the theme “Stranger Comes To Town,” a phrase lifted from the old adage: “All great literature is one of two stories; a hero goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town.” Works exhibited at SPRING/BREAK 2018 explore the tension between and merging of difference and sameness; them and us; narrator and audience.

“(Hotel) XX” is an immersive installation and group exhibition, presenting the work of female identifying artists whose work explores the intimate experiences of the transient visitor, a traveler on a journey to a strange and new place. The installation is presented as a retro hotel reminiscent of a roadside stay off the highway. Travelers, lovers and drifters alike have left behind fragments of their history that became part of the hotel’s DNA, with memories lingering on the walls and each traveler’s experiences left behind through the artwork on display. Their encounters have been immortalized as imprints of visual mementos, each vividly charged with the intensity of the moments that took place in the room or in their dreams while sleeping in it.

Art in a variety of mediums including photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, textile and video present the history of female “strangers” who have metaphorically or physically left their mark. The furniture in the room additionally creates an experiential framework. The title “(Hotel) XX” is a syntactical play on female sex chromosomes, and reflects the project’s focus on the female experience through a surreal and voyeuristic journey through time.

Soft Usurpers : Art Show & Open Mic

Soft Usurpers : Art Show & Open Mic

Hello Everyone! I will be displaying/selling my art at this amazing showcase! I'll also be performing spoken word!

Soft Usurpers is a multi-disciplinary art show and open mic exploring the many functions of role play in our everyday lives. In the digital age in which we exist on multiple platforms in real life and on the internet, we are presented with near infinite ways to communicate who we are while simultaneously being constricted to the binary formatting of cyber-reality. Living fluidly in transition between the avatars, the fractured snapshots of invented selves, one adapts spiritually and emotionally in order to maintain some sense of center.

6pm : Doors Open : Artist’s Market
7:30- 10pm Open Mic and Live Performances
