Occupy Your BFF, Seven Billion Bloombergs (Occupy Museums at Momenta Art http://www.momentaart.org/)Occupy Museums' closing event at Momenta Art is this Sunday, 10/28 beginning at 4pm. Hope to see you there!Momenta Art: 56 Bogart St., Brooklyn, NY 11206 |This event is followed by a closing party from 6-8pm.
1. We hope that Momenta Art’s willingness to support the questions our movement raises can be an example for many others.We’re aware that by working with an institution that is partially supported by the Bloomberg Family Foundation (BFF) in its current season, we operate from a position of impurity. In recognizing our complicity and by engaging rather than ignoring the issue, we underline our commitment to experimentation and activating change in the existing world. We intend to push art institutions to question and act against injustice, and to highlight BFF as a case study in the blatant use of arts and non-arts funding as a means of whitewashing massive 1% power-grabs.
2. The physical space of Momenta Art is a Commons for the Occupy Movement (and beyond) during the show.
