The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) and BlackStar invite members of each organization to join for a special evening with artist Rashid Zakat to discuss the creative process behind his newest audio-visual installation Revival!, currently on display in the front window at FWM during gallery hours.
Revival!, is an attempt to reimagine and practice what collective joy and resilience look like in times of crisis. Subtly drawing upon José Esteban Muñoz’s notion of ecstasy as “an invitation, a call to a then-and-there, a not-yet-here… a collective potentiality,” Revival! treats ecstasy not only as a corrective balm to injury but a world-making claim to the right of life, imagination, and joyful expression, an especially critical response to our current moment.
This event is free but open only to members of FWM and/or BlackStar.
