People who have saved this event:


For this live re-enactment of Senator Bernie Sanders' Bush Tax Cuts filibuster, the
interdisciplinary artist will follow strict filibustering rules: continual speaking, no
bathroom break, no sitting or leaning and no eating or drinking until the 8.5-hour
performance is complete.


The exhibition Of the people curated by Erin Donnelly, opens at Smack Mellon on June 17 and will be on view through July 31, reflects of-the-moment political opinions shaping the 2016 presidential race in the United States. With video, drawing, photography, painting and sculpture as well as socially engaged projects and site-specific installation, the exhibition features artists selected through an open call who hail from California, Maryland, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina and Ohio. Artworks included in the group show offer critical perspectives on the current electoral process while challenging notions of American democracy today.
