When: Saturday, October 19, 4:30PM
Where: Park Place between Vanderbilt and Underhill Avenues
On Saturday, October 19, Creative Time and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum will present Between the Door and the Street, a major work by the internationally celebrated artist Suzanne Lacy, perhaps the most important socially-engaged artist working today. Women and men of all ages will sit in small groups on the stoops of Park Place and—in the long-standing tradition of Brooklyn’s stoop culture—engage in unique and unscripted dialogues about social-justice issues and how they relate to feminism. The issues will include equity, changing gender roles, labor, violence, poverty, and migration. The audience will wander freely between stoops to observe and absorb the candid commentary, shaping a new understanding of feminism. Organized with the input of nineteen advisers, nearly eighty organizations, more than 300 individual participants, 120 volunteers, and the Park Place community, this is truly a collaborative effort.
You can be a part of the production! Brooklyn Museum and Creative Time are seeking dedicated and energized volunteers from the neighborhood to act as wayfinders, stoop assistants, production assistants and green room staff. Volunteers must be available on October 19 from 12PM to 8PM (volunteers assisting with installation must be available from 9AM to 3PM). To volunteer, email [email protected] with your name, phone number and shift interest.
