Jason Lazarus: A CENTURY OF DISSENT! in Harlem

Through September 1

 

Artist Jason Lazarus will be in residence this summer at Hunter East Harlem Gallery: 2180 3rd Ave., NY, NY

A CENTURY OF DISSENT! in Harlem is a summer long visual public lab designed to collaboratively remake protest signs used in Harlem and East Harlem throughout the past century up to the present moment.  

Images depicting public disagreement and political critique from of Harlem’s history of protests will be culled from research before and during the lab, and project participants and artists will collaborate with Lazarus to pick a source image and create a passing life-size facsimile of the original sign of dissent.

Project participants may also elect to describe a sign they previously made or witnessed being used in a public protest, and collaborate with Lazarus on crafting a recreation. Near the end of the residency, Lazarus proposes to organize a community march in a formal procession through the neighborhood streets presenting the multitude signs showcasing the living histories that inform the present moment.  

A CENTURY OF DISSENT! in Harlem is an open platform that will evolve through the summer with the input from the public and community. In addition, local artists will be invited to collaborate or take-over the lab to pursue related paths of inquiry and collaboration.
