Join us for a artist walk and talk to celebrate a new temporary public art exhibition, Persuasive Visions, featuring artists Gina Goico and Nick Kozak. Inspired by W. E. B. Du Bois’s conviction that propaganda through the arts can create social change, Persuasive Visions presents the work of two local artists, Gina Goico and Nick Kozak, who respond to today’s constant deluge of (mis)information.
As we are inundated daily with media Gina Goico reminds us of the power of cleansing ourselves and holding space for our community. In this case, she invited neighbors to reconnect through conversation and collaboration creating traditional Dominican pellizas that read “reconocer para sanar”/ “recognize to heal” in her installation Sanar.
Nick Kozak’s installation Opposition Position challenges us to examine our education system and to stage our own educational interactions in this classroom in the park. Here all are welcome to attend free workshops led by local students on the first Saturday of the month through March (rain date on second Saturday).
This exhibition was curated by presented by Stephanie A. Lindquist and is presented by the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance.
