Art and Social Activism Festival, 26 September - 20 October, 2019

Rotem Reshef will debut "Scroll of Perseverance", a new painting-installation at the “Art and Social Activism Festival”, taking place in New York from September 26 to October 20, 2019.

Reshef will present a rotating installation, in which a large scroll of painting will be hanging on the wall, and will be changed every few days revealing new parts of the canvas, concealing others that have been presented previously. This dynamic installation will strive to intrigue the viewers to come every week (a total of four weeks) and see a new section of the artwork, while alluding to their previous recollection of what the painting looks like when they had seen in last.

This site-specific creation engages with the theme of “Art and Social Activism”, by referring to climate change and global warming, and by reminding the temporality of nature. The rotating composition of the painting-installation alludes to our possibilities and options to try and control different aspects of nature, and especially by trying to “reverse” the damages caused to it, exemplifying our options for recreation, and encouraging continuously new cycles of growth and emergence of life.

Art and Social Activism amplifies the voices of socially engaged artists, makers, and designers through festivals, spotlight projects, and a monthly zine.

Festival Dates: September 26 to October 20, 2019 Public Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 7:00pm Location: 32 Orchard St. New York City
