“Tower” Projection Nights – Jamaica Flux

July 26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Tower is an interdisciplinary installation work utilizing sculpture, video projection, archiving and community participation. The project reflects on climate change and the biblical story of The Tower of Babel—a story of greed and value of cultural differences.

The artwork is located in Rufus King Park on the west side of the King Manor Museum. Projection Nights will happen on Monday, July 26, 8:00-9:30pm, and Friday & Saturday, August 6 & 7, 7:30-9:00pm (weather permitting). During these events, the video projection component of the artwork, showing multilingual interviews about climate change, will be activated for drop-in viewing. The events are free and open to the public.

This project is part of Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2021 organized by the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Resorts World New York, and the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Tower is additionally funded by the Finlandia Foundation and the Puffin Foundation.
