Letting Go

October 29, 2011

The curators, Jeanne Brasille and Jade Lien, renewed the abandoned and desolate block between Broad and Central Avenue in Newark, NJ on Saturday during the 10th Annual Open Doors and Studio Tour.  They brought together a collection of over 50 artists to take part in a public cleansing and healing.  The metamorphosis began at 3pm and didn’t end until 9pm.  What started as an opportunity for artists to purge their own emotions and engage with the public, became a spiritual catharsis for a blighted and neglected urban landscape.  As performances and installations projected feelings of loss, fear and hope onto the space they, in turn, transformed the space into a rich coalescence of meaningful human experiences. Great job Rogue Video! I will be posting more images soon.
