There’s a hurricane in us: A Collective Poster Making Learnshop

Kevin Quiles Bonilla and Zaq Landsberg

Géza, 306 Maujer

Artists Kevin Quiles Bonilla and Zaq Landsberg invite folks of all ages to make posters for their public art installation For centuries, and still…(anticipated completion) located within the Harlem Art Park.

This learnshop centers on a single prompt: “What does it mean to become a hurricane, both individually and collectively?” The poster-making activity is inspired by the interventions on construction site fencings all over New York, and is based on Kevin Quiles Bonilla’s past work “…is a hurricane”, in which he reimagined protests signs from the Black Lives Matter Movement and from the protests in Puerto Rico during the summer of 2019. Participants will be invited to create and personalize their own protest signs by reconsidering the imagery of the hurricane as a symbol of resistance and power.

The final results of this workshop will eventually be wheat pasted on the installation, located in Harlem Art Park, located at E 120th St &, Sylvan Pl, New York, NY 10035. All ages are welcome. Prior registration is recommended, drop-ins are welcome pending availability.
