(Rain date March 30, 2019)
Starting location: Front Steps of Brooklyn Museum’s Plaza on Eastern Parkway
Join the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Public Library for a community walk with artist and educator Kameelah Janan Rasheed. Our walking group will visit the Museum and the Library to forage for texts and images in both places as a departure point for learning activities and conversations among participants. As we move between the institutions, which both currently house Rasheed’s public artworks, we will consider movement among space and language to draw on Rasheed’s concept of “an ecosystem of ideas”. This joint program coincides with Brooklyn Museum’s yearlong public art activation, Something to Say, featuring Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine, Deborah Kass, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Hank Willis Thomas (October 3, 2018–June 30, 2019) and Brooklyn Public Library’s exhibition, Kameelah Janan Rasheed: Scoring the Stacks (January 11-April 7, 2019).
Please note that participants will be required to walk approximately half a mile during this program.
Kameelah Janan Rasheed: Scoring the Stacks is made possible by the Katowitz Radin Endowment, women.nyc and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
