FREE and open to people of all races, ethnicities, ages, and nationalities, artists and non-artists. No RSVP required.

The Fierce Urgency of Now is a public dialogue event for artists, activists, friends, colleagues, and affiliates. Many of us are still feeling the need for space and community in which to process the election and its ramifications. Artists and activists are simultaneously part of multiple vulnerable populations; now more than ever, we are concerned about racism, sexism, visas and immigration, access to healthcare, rights and safety for queer and trans people, disability access, affordable housing, financial stability, and so much more.
This loosely structured public event creates a “temporary commons” in which to think, talk, wonder, question, imagine, and brainstorm. It is conceived as an open dialogue (not a strategy meeting or a place to determine actionable steps, although if those emerge, we’ll welcome them too). One event can’t do everything. The Fierce Urgency of Now is intended to be part of a collective beginning, which hopefully leads to future dialogues, more focused groups, strategy building, task forces, etc.

Politics then and now . . . In a Boxing Ring!
Much more than just America’s first play, Androboros exposes many incredible comparisons to the current political scene with a surprising and edgy humor that couldn’t be more right for our non-stop election madness. 300 years later, its parallels to today’s trendy rebellion against an ambiguous “establishment” government are both undeniable and comical.

CADILAC HOUSE AND HOME
By Marcus Davidson
The Actor’s Conservatory, 315 West 39th St
Conceived and curated by Maya Jeffereis
Her upcoming exhibition Fallout Shelter is a video installation and participatory project that engages participants in a conversation about identity politics. It stages a US Navy “moral values” training exercise, found by the artist at an abandoned naval station in Puerto Rico. The exercise outlines a post-apocalyptic survival scenario. Participants must choose which six out of ten fallout shelter occupants are to remain, based on limited information about age, race, gender, sexuality, occupation, and ideology. Participants are playfully confronted with their own values as they engage in a thought experiment about ethics, identification, and representation, as they decide who will survive to rebuild society.
This examination raises some critical questions about power and authority.

The July Flux Thursday potluck will be a play on the American Independence Day BBQ. This is a reverse July 4th party. We will be celebrating collaboration, cooperation, cross-pollination, relation & alliance building, and the recognition of the impossibility of autonomy. We will be talking about interdependence, not only in terms of societal systems & structures, but also the interdependent relationship of art & politics with the following queries:
How do art & politics feed one another?
Why do people have the urge to separate them?
Is there any benefit to separating them?
How do you negotiate their relationship in your life & practice?
