Stephanie Acosta’s Good Day God Damn @ The Chocolate Factory Theater
Mar 19 @ 8:00 pm – Mar 28 @ 8:00 pm
Stephanie Acosta's Good Day God Damn @ The Chocolate Factory Theater | New York | United States

Traveling through the fractured American landscape, looming vibrations push the ground up and the cosmos down as our community-turned-cabal explores terror, tectonic shifts, psychedelic self-harm and toxic monuments. Through the lens of a thriller, our cell flows through domestic borders, mingles with the extraterrestrial and unpacks landlocked limitations through discursive research, experiments in moving image, experiential installation, and absurd rigorous ensemble development.

Please note: March 19-28, 2020, Only on Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm.

Performers: Leslie Cuyjet, Miriam Gabriel, Angie Pittman, Jessie Young.

Good Day God Damn began its development as part of a Creative Residency at The Chocolate Factory Theater in September 2018, curated by Blaze Ferrer.

人柱の物語 (hitobashira no monogatari): Exhibition by Nine Yamamoto @ Flux Factory
Mar 26 – Mar 30 all-day
人柱の物語 (hitobashira no monogatari): Exhibition by Nine Yamamoto @ Flux Factory | New York | United States

In her first solo exhibition on Turtle Island, Nine Yamamoto-Masson presents new works that reflect on the private dimensions of war and US imperialism in Asia that, sidelined by hegemonic regimes of knowledge and cold bureaucratization of violence, often elude representation and public discourse – especially within the US public imaginary of Asia and of US military actions.

In this exhibition, Yamamoto-Masson chooses a reduced formal language and visual codes to unlock engagement with the history, reality, and the private and political afterlife of the Manhattan Project and the ongoing global nuclear colonialism it is but one aspect of – including its legions of ghosts around the world. In drawings, collages, installations, and sculptures, the artist negotiates the politics of what can be publicly revealed of the active legacy of gendered and racialized state-sanctioned violence – including rape as a technology of power – and what remains incommunicable and unwelcome.
