Two great events to get people out + taking about art in Brooklyn today! It’s Drawing Democracies day at Pratt and I’m participating in the “Drawing Conversations: rapid one on one” hosted by The Drawing Center from 11:30am-12:30pm at the Student Union, 248 Flushing Ave.
“Drawing Conversations (rapid one-on-one): Participants can sit down for two-minute rotating conversations with artists, curators, students, and educators to explore the significance of drawing.”
Between the Door and the Street from 4:30pm – 6:30pm at Park Place, between Vanderbilt and Underhill Avenues, Brooklyn, NY.
“Creative Time and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum presents Between the Door and the Street, a major public performance by the internationally celebrated artist Suzanne Lacy. Some 300 women and a few men–all selected to represent a cross-section of ages, backgrounds, and perspectives–will gather on the stoops along a residential street in Brooklyn, where they will engage in unscripted conversations about a variety of issues related to gender politics today.”
I will be joining Shelly Bahl, Stoop Leader, “women of color in the arts”, The South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC). Please come, find our stoop, and listen in on our discussion! Our stoop includes: Shelly Bahl, Sunita S. Mukhi, Monica Jahan Bose, and Rocio Aranda-Alvarado.”
