Opening reception for Моя Америка (My America)

Ongoing

Моя Америка (My America) is the inaugural project under One Big City, a series of collaborative residencies and events produced by CEC ArtsLink to engage New York City’s diaspora communities through international arts partnerships. “Artpologist” Daniel Gallegos (New York City) and filmmaker Mikhail Zheleznikov (St. Petersburg, Russia) present Моя Америка (My America), an installation about Russian-speaking New Yorkers from a wide range of post-Soviet states.

This month, Gallegos and Zheleznikov created the Brighton Beach Memory Exchange to collect artifacts and stories, and to meet collaborators to introduce them to their new lives in America. At the reception, Gallegos and Zheleznikov will offer shashlyk (shish kebab) traditionally cooked on a mangal (grill) as part of an installation including videos and drawings created in response to these investigations.

Free admission.

One Big City is funded by The Rockefeller Foundation’s NYC Cultural Innovation Fund and the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
