Artist News | Fiscal Sponsorship
Check out two Fiscally Sponsored projects by artists who work at the intersection of arts and social justice.
Folks in and around New York City and Chicago – we encourage you to join NYFA Fiscally Sponsored artists at performances and installations in these two cities this week!
We are delighted to share this interview with Katya Grokhovsky, the project director of The Immigrant Artist Biennial. Join Grokhovsky at a Soft Launch Fundraiser for the Biennial on Sunday, August 4 from 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM at Assembly Room Gallery’s Sidewalk Cellar Space (191 Henry Street, New York, NY 10002), featuring a solo performance by Kathie Halfin.
Ekene Ijeoma’s Deconstructed Anthems will premiere in Chicago at Chicago Arts Club (201 E. Ontario Street, Chicago, IL 60611) in partnership with Illinois Humanities: Envisioning Justice on Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10. In this series of music performances and installations, a self-playing piano and/or musicians deconstruct “The Star-Spangled Banner,” repeating it multiple times, removing notes at the rate of mass incarceration in the United States. The performance ends in silence. Deconstructed Anthems recently received a MAP Fund grant and Ijeoma is a NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Architecture/Environmental Structures/Design ‘16.
