Announcing Light of Interiors, a benefit exhibition for the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence, with a performance by Julia Santoli on October 1st

Today’s post features an announcement from alumna Julia Santoli about an upcoming exhibition and event to benefit the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence. The show will open this weekend and run over the next couple weeks, and Julia will be preforming at the reception this Saturday, October 1st. Here’s the message she sent us, followed by a more detailed description from Art Theory Project that she forwarded:

My friends and collaborators from Art Theory Project are organizing an exhibition/fundraiser/event for the North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence (an AMAZING organization providing resources and therapy for people who have experienced domestic violence) at El Museo de Los Sures in South Williamsburg. The exhibition runs Oct 1-16, and the opening is Oct 1st. We are inviting some amazing poets to read, and Kathy Halfin (SVA MFA Fine Arts alumna) and myself will be doing a performance during the evening. The event is totally open to the public, and we will be collecting pay-as-you-wish donations there.

I think this will be a really positive and powerful experience.


Here’s more information from Art Theory Project:

Light of Interiors creates a space for strength through vocal utterance and self-care. External interiors: letting our voices resonate to illuminate the stories we hold within and let out through our bodies, as we inhabit this space— together— now.

In collaboration with North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family ViolenceArt Theory Project presents an exhibition, performance programming, and voice workshop to open dialogue and exchange on mindfulness and grounding.

ATP is multivalent and collaborative interaction. We are an art collective of four women from different cultures – Polish, Korean American, Russian-Israeli, Vietnamese-Italian-American. Our collaborative effort with artists propels experimentation and alternative moods of thought. ATP pursues intimate cultural encounters and cooperation, cultivating stronger relationships between New York communities and contemporary art.
