Artist News | Fiscal Sponsorship
Explore questions about life and death through the thought-provoking work of Fiscally Sponsored artists.
This fall, take advantage of opportunities to connect with art that helps to navigate our collective sense of humanity.
New York’s five boroughs are coming together to create more than 250 events exploring death and celebrating life as part of the Reimagine End of Life festival, which will run from October 27 – November 3, 2018. Three Fiscally Sponsored projects will be featured in the festival, and all tackle the fear of fighting the unknown:
Defining Hope, a film by Carolyn Jones about people making decisions at life’s fragile moments and the nurses who guide them, will screen on November 1 at Flushing Library at 6:00 PM and Angelika Film Center at 7:30 PM. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A session.
Leigh Davis will screen her experimental film An Inquiry into End-of-Life Experiences on November 1 at the Modern Chapel at Green-Wood Cemetery at 7:00 PM. This filmic essay features illustrated true accounts of individual end-of-life-experiences (known as ELEs) during or following the death of a loved one.
