Revolution67

Revolution ’67, a film directed by Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno (2007) provides an illuminating account of events too often relegated to footnotes in U.S. history - the Black urban rebellions of the 1960's. Focusing on the six-day Newark, N.J. rebellion on July 12, 1967, the film reveals how the disturbance began as spontaneous revolts against poverty and police brutality and ended as fateful milestones in America's struggles over race and economic justice.

Sanctiloquence

January 19, 2017 - March 18, 2017
City Without Walls, 6 Crawford Street
Newark, NJ 07102 United States

This three-person, collaborative exhibition that converts the gallery into a technologically mediated sacred space featuring works by Marc D’Agusto, Eric Valosin and Russ Wills.

"Sanctiloquence" reflects the artists' common desire to probe the unknowable and seek the sublime amidst a post-modernized context. The work draws on a diverse range of spiritual traditions to transform the gallery space into sacred space, entertaining themes of technologically mediated contemplative experience, the role of the body, cycles of decay and revitalization, and virtual-physical-material transcendence and transformation. . Incorporating Zen Buddhist, Judeo-Christian, Islamic, and various other Eastern and Western religious and philosophical influences, this show seeks to rupture the sacred/secular divide and allow viewers to dwell within the commonalities of shared experience.

Given the current social-political climate, it has become increasingly important to create spaces that bridge gaps across different perspectives and facilitate relational dialogue. Through its blending of new and traditional media and the relational aesthetics created, Sanctiloquence provides an interactive space to compel us toward greater empathy and awareness of the sacred, reflecting on the past, present and future.

An opening reception will be held on January 19, 2017, 6-9pm.
