ACTION: BRING YOUR TRUMP PROBLEMS TO A DINNER PARTY
Artists Liat Berdugo and Leora Fridman present Rituals Adjacent to Trump: a dinner party in which guests bring problems they have as a result of living under the Trump administration. By the end of the evening, guests receive rituals for creative practices and behaviors in the response to this Trump Era.
This new social practice collaboration examines in both a serious and magical way the experience of living adjacent to President Trump —a reality that many of us have not chosen. Berdugo and Fridman are invested in examining what it means to live in these conditions, and how we can bring to them our creative tools. Rather than looking away, Rituals Adjacent to Trump turns creative work to our crisis moment itself.
- RSVP to the dinner party
- Begin to think of a small, personal problem you’ve been struggling under the Trump Presidency—a problem that can’t be fixed solely by changing laws.
- On April 16th, bring your problems to B4bel4b Gallery. (Bring a drink or dessert to share if you are so moved!)
- Get ready to creatively problem solve
This project is generously hosted by B4bel4b Gallery in partnership with 100 Days Action. Previous iterations of Rituals may be seen here: http://www.liatberdugo.com/
