DIN DIN A CURATED COMMUNITY POTLUCK FOR CREATIVES

DE-CONSTRUKT studio in Red Hook Brooklyn invites creatives to join us for a potluck style community dinner.
This evening will feature the work of our current March artists in residents, Chloe Devine and Maia Radanovic.

Chloe intended to create the project Common-Unity/Idiosyncrasy as a mode of investigating the concept of belonging to community. Asking: How do we join a community to which we do not have “roots?” What makes us all the same? What divides us? How do we talk about our differences and move past them to our similarities?

Trying to “join” a community in just three short weeks, the artist took to the streets photographing and meeting locals of Red Hook, to see what the community is like and how she might fit in. Simultaneously, the discussion of “allyship” courses through the project and the study of belonging to community. As a white female, Chloe intends the work to look at the issues around allyship and how to support and join communities of colour in New York as a white woman visiting from Canada.

The posters that developed under the title Common-Unity/Idiosyncrasy is a series of images and graphics which she hopes to be a lifting point for the conversation. How do we join new communities in authentic, respectful and integral ways?

Maia Radanovic will be doing an Intimate Taboo Strip Talk, inviting participants to share their experiences, fears, and thoughts on certain topics that are, for-whatever-reason, considered as taboo. By stripping down the taboo topics, Maia will be enforcing the notion that we create strength through vulnerability eventually creating new depths of courage. Maia explores themes of masculine and feminine roles in society, stereotypes and archetypes of men and women in relationship, and will utilize these topics to create discussion around what normally feels like an uncomfortable conversations.

As with every dinner we will share amongst each other what we are working on, thinking about and opportunities.This dinner is open to everyone. Please bring food and or drink to share. If you have any questions on what to bring or about this evening please email laura@de-construkt.com.

Please note our dinners are usually every last Sunday of the month due to scheduling conflict we changed the date.
