Fair | October 7th, 06:29AM: An Immersive Exhibition on Nova Music Festival Massacre (THE FINAL DAY)


To celebrate the end of his two years of service as a medic in the Israel Defense Forces' paratrooper division, Tomer Meir joined 13 of his friends at the Nova Musica Festival on the weekend of October 6 in Re'im in southern Israel. It was his first ever music festival. "It was the best moments of my life. I can't explain the state we were in," the 21-year-old told the New York Jewish Week. "It was pure love -- people dancing, laughing, smiling. All the good stuff that we're living for." Until 6:29 a.m. on Saturday morning. The red alerts, the rockets and the running. "The music stopped. The rockets started. We started running for our lives," Meir said. Meir is a survivor of the Nova Music Festival Massacre, where Hamas militants killed 364 festival-goers and took at least 40 hotstages on the morning of Oct. 7. Six months after the attack, Meir is in New York sharing his story as part of an interactive exhibit about that day, which he says is helping him heal. The Nova Musical Festival exhibition, titled October 7th, 06:29AM, is an immersive step into what it was like to be at the festival when it was attacked. Screens show clips from the attack on Nova are displayed next to personal and camping items taken from the festival recreating the festival layout. The exhibit, which debuted in Tel Aviv for 10 weeks in December, was created by Israeli designers and cultural producers, many of whom were producers with the Nova Music Festival itself. It was brought to New York with the help of Scooter Braun, the Jewish-American music producer and philanthropist. The exhibit recreates the visuals and sounds of the Nova Music Festival massacre. But the New York version is in some ways "more intense," according to Yael Finkelstein, a volunteer who collected items from the Nova site and helped set up both the Tel Aviv and New York exhibit. New elements at the New York exhibit include dozens of video testimonies from survivors, Zaka volunteers and family members, as well as graphic raw footage taken on Oct. 7 from both festival-goers and Hamas militants. In addition, survivors of the massacre such as Meir and Sassi will be at the exhibit every day to share their stories and answer questions. Their goal, Meir said, is to show New Yorkers that the horror they experienced could happen to anyone.

Discussion | As I Sit Waiting: Artist and Writer in Conversation


Artist Lydia Nobles collected narratives of people's experiences with abortion access or lack thereof to create a sculpture in honor of them. Each sculpture reflects a waiting room chair at an abortion clinic. The sculptures are visceral and communicate the complexity of emotions often denied to pregnant people due to shame, stigma and abortion bans. Lydia uses materiality to convey memory, the body, and reproductive histories. Some works repurpose a left-behind high chair, bassinet, others are constructed independently.

Performance | The Queen of Fourteenth Street: An Audio Drama


Legendary theatre artist and queer icon Eva Le Gallienne lives again in THE QUEEN OF FOURTEENTH STREET, an original audio drama by Barrie Kreinik. Come see a live reading by the actors who recorded the audio drama, followed by a Q&A with the writer, actors, and director. In 1926, at the age of 27, Broadway star Eva Le Gallienne left the commercial theatre behind to establish the Civic Repertory Theatre on West Fourteenth Street. With the aim of producing high-quality plays at the lowest possible prices, she served as the Civic Rep’s lead actor, director, and producer for seven years. Behind the scenes, she was openly gay at a time when many queer people still lived in the shadows. In bringing to life the story of this pioneering woman, writer-performer Barrie Kreinik has created an audio drama that reveals as much about our present-day culture as it does about the challenges this powerful artist faced down.

Opening Reception | Imani Jacqueline Brown: Gulf


This show examines geographies of oil and gas, spanning from their cosmological origins to our emancipatory futures. For a decade, Imani has traced the fractal catastrophes that unfurl along the continuum of extractivism in her homeland of Louisiana, from colonialism and slavery to fossil fuel production. Now, through audiovisual layering, sonic reimagining, and archival recontextualizing, this exhibition envisions a blackout of fossil power across the territories affected by the legacies of Gulf Oil Corporation. This exhibition illustrates the ways in which the planet’s surface, depths, and biosphere have been depleted for the extraction of financial value. Imani maps out the intertwined ways in which the production of oil and gas from the Gulf of Mexico is part of an expansive politico-economic, socio-technological, and cosmological system.This work intricately ties the celestial with the geological, emphasizing the manifold ways in which fossil capitalism perpetuates epistemic, ecological, and economic violence, but also creates the impetus for the formation of fractal solidarity networks among peoples, places, and species branching from Louisiana to Angola to Palestine. Imani Jacqueline Brown is an artist, activist, writer, and architectural researcher from New Orleans, based in London. Her research is disseminated internationally through art installations, public actions, reports, and testimony delivered to courts and organs of the United Nations. Imani received her MA with distinction from the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London, in 2019 and her BA in Anthropology and Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2010. Among other things, she is currently a doctoral candidate in the School of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London, a research fellow with Forensic Architecture, and an associate lecturer in MA Architecture at the Royal College of Art.

Performance | whale fall abyss: Performance Art on the Decomposition of Bodies


Choreographer mayfield brooks' work started virtually as an experimental dance film in 2021 during the height of the Covid-19 epidemic. When Whale Fall (the film) premiered, brooks wrote, “This project was born out of a desire to sit with grief and rage in a world that discards too much and consumes too much. As a result, the bodies of whales and the bodies of Black folk seem to have a kinship in how they have been both targeted, hunted and consumed since the transatlantic slave trade. I have also come to know that some slave ships were used as whaling vessels.” In this present moment of continued environmental destruction caused by war and accelerated global warming, brooks is asking, “What light reaches us? What darkness welcomes the reckoning?”  After four years of rigorous research and numerous iterations, brooks’s ever evolving project continues to decompose itself. This iteration lives as a call to the wild parts of ourselves, a denouement to complacent attitudes towards death and decay. How are we entangled in the ruse of romance with our compulsion to consume and our dependence on war machines? Why do we continue to kill? How can the whale fall reorient us to face our own mortality with more compassion?  brooks considers the whale fall as a reckoning. They imagine their ancestor’s bones mingling with whale bones beckoning us to embrace interspecies care and relation beyond the human. Perhaps we can save the whales, ourselves, and the planet if we simply decompose. Performers: mayfield brooks, performer; Dorothy Carlos, electric cellist; Camilo Restrepo, performer
