As an artist focusing on social commentary issues, Myra Roberts’ “Dream Peace” is her newest series of multimedia works in a project spanning the past two decades. “Dream Peace” features poster-style paintings of contemporary political injustices, portraits of Bielski partisans and other survivors of the Holocaust (some of whom were interviewed by the artist), testimonial videos, and spiritual/Buddhist paintings that evoke the antithesis of war.
“Dream Peace” will also feature S(he) Will Fade: A Theatrical Ethnography, a performance art group that takes true survivor stories of sexual violence and retells them or transforms them into art. This effort rebuilds the narrative and opens dialogue on sexual violence. For this event, S(he) Will Fade will be retelling a few survivor stories in the form of a group scene integrating original spoken and dance.
Opening: Friday, February 2nd • 6pm – 10pm
Performance by S(he) Will Fade at 7:30pm
Closing: Friday, February 24th
