For over twenty years, artist and activist Rigo 23 has challenged the status quo and advocated for social and political change through his murals, interventions, sculptures, paintings, drawings, performances, and zines. Informed by both the history of punk and DIY (do-it-yourself) aesthetics Rigo 23’s practice comfortably adapts itself to the environment in which it is presented. Inspired by this artist’s installation at the New Museum, The Deeper They Bury Me, The Louder My Voice Becomes, create a sign advocating for political change and participate on a one-day intervention. Signs created by the participants of this workshop will be projected on adjacent wall of the New Museum on the evening of Saturday, October 3, 2009.
From 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., families are invited into our theater to view a 30-minute program of short films provided by Brooklyn International Film Festival’s kidsfilmfest.
