Between the Door and the Street

Saturday, October 19th, 4:30pm – 6:30pm

Park Place, between Vanderbilt and Underhill Avenues
Brooklyn, NY

This fall, Creative Time and the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum will present Between the Door and the Street, a major public performance by the internationally celebrated artist Suzanne Lacy, perhaps the most important socially-engaged artist working today. On October 19, some 300 women and a few men–all selected to represent a cross-section of ages, backgrounds, and perspectives–will gather on the stoops along a residential street in Brooklyn, where they will engage in unscripted conversations about a variety of issues related to gender politics today. Wander among the groups, listen to what they are saying, and form your own opinions!

Joining other invited organizations and individuals participating in this project, members of SAWCC’s team of accomplished artists, curators and activists will be engaged in a public conversation on the subject of “women of color in the arts.” Please come, find our stoop, and listen in on our discussion! Our stoop includes: Shelly Bahl (Stoop Leader), Sunita S. Mukhi, Monica Jahan Bose, Rocio Aranda-Alvarado and Maria Hupfield.
