Welcome to Remezcla’s weekly guide to Latin art openings in your city each week. Mingle with art admirers, collectors and casual passersby to check out these new works. And don’t forget to grab a free glass of wine…or three.
In these times of rampant police brutality and wavering accountability for abuse of power by the cops, a mass of visual artists, musicians and poets are gathering to take survey of modern day censorship. They want to investigate how free expression can be a potential gateway to healing and ultimately safer communities. The catalyst for Viral was the 2014 death of Eric Garner at the hands of police, and the subsequent police harassment of Ramsey Orta– the Staten Island man who filmed the fatal incident. Artists include street art queen TooFly, Kool AD, Bunny Michael, Cekis and many more. There will also be poetry readings, pop up shops by Stereotype Co and Lune Innate and performances by Nenjah Nycist and Nani Castle. Visit the show and take part in the ongoing conversation this Sunday, January 24th from 6 to 9pm in Staten Island.
