Festival | Super Sabado Block Party


Celebrate a day honoring the memories of ancestors, family traditions, and the power of women storytellers, inspired by the new exhibition, Amalia Mesa-Bains: Archeology of Memory, a retrospective by the pioneering artist, curator, and theorist. Born in 1943 to a Mexican immigrant family, Mesa-Bains is a leading figure in Chicanx art for nearly half a century, producing work that explores intersectional feminist themes, environmentally centered spirituality, and cultural diversity. Throughout the day, explore the exhibition with free gallery tours. The block party will be followed by a concert presented in collaboration with Carnegie Hall City Wide Concert Series at 4pm. As beneficiaries of jarocho culture and noteworthy performers with years of experience on both national and international stages, Caña Dulce y Caña Brava’s performances celebrate the music, poetry, dance and traditional attire of Veracruz, Mexico. The group stands out as an artistic project that highlights feminine poetry and voices, accompanied by traditional string instruments such as the harp and the jarana, percussion and zapateado.
