She Lives by the Piers
On June 8, our Spring 2023 resident Nadja Abt adds the beginnings of new chapter to this waterfront history. She invites everyone to a small parade around Pier 40 at Hudson River Park for a collective contribution to New York’s Herstory Seawomen Archive. She calls for contemporary witnesses and invites everyone who would like to occupy the piers for an hour of “critical fabulation” (Saidiya Hartman). During the walk you will be able to share your contribution with the other participants and become a visible, important part of the cultural (her)story around the piers.
This event is free and open to all who are interested in listening and sharing, prior registration is recommended.
For Your Reference is a series of events that spotlights our current artists in residence and gives them a platform to share ongoing conversations, research, and references.
