Exhibit Opening: Zip Code Memory Project
The Zip Code Memory Project has partnered with the Cathedral to celebrate the power of community and care in neighborhoods unequally affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Following several months of creative workshops engaging participants from across Upper N.Y.C. Zip Codes, the exhibition and performances express a collective desire for renewed hope, connection and transformative justice.
The opening events of IMAGINE REPAIR on April 23 will take place in the Nave of the Cathedral and include performances and presentations by Alicia Grullon, Cathedral Poet in Residence Marie Howe, Fred Moten, Amyra Léon, Rev. Juan Carlos Ruiz, George Emilio Sanchez and Noni Carter with workshop participants, and a concert by Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir.
The exhibition will be hosted in the Chapel of St. James at the Cathedral. This anti-monumental exhibition includes projects produced by community participants in ongoing workshops; collaborative installations of neighborhood stories and voices; along with works by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Kamal Badhey, Jordan Cruz, Maria José Contreras, Judith Helfand and Gabriela Canal, Chelsea Knight, Susan Meiselas, Lorie Novak, Desiree Rios, Carrie Mae Weems, and Deborah Willis.
