A cross-disciplinary festival of sound art, visual arts, installations, performance and community participation that explores ancient rituals within contemporary-art practices. Dark Nights, Bright Lights honors the coming Winter Solstice, which has inspired cultures the world over to create sacred rituals and rites, often involving women and the home, subjects often overlooked by writers-and readers-of history. The festival will showcase traditions dating 7,000 years to present day, stemming from Jewish diaspora, Korean shamanism, ancient Persian philosophies, sufism, Palestinian art and contemporary personal religion in the U.S.
Artists will be in residence at the gallery on the following dates:
Dohee Lee: December 7th, 12th, 14th, 19th, and 21st
Jewlia Eisenberg: December 6th, 13th, and 20th
Feel free to stop by the gallery, chat with the artists, and observe their working process.
