9/20 | Live at the Archway: Chiquita Brujita Presents a Night of Brooklyn Brujeria
Close out an epic Live at the Archway season with an epic party: Chiquita Brujita presents a night of Brooklyn Brujeria! Through rhythm and dance, the evening will highlight the music, magic, and resiliency of Puerto Rico as we mark one year since Hurricane Maria.
TODAY AT #LiveAtTheArchway
- ON STAGE AND IN THE GALLERY: Chiquita Brujita and Friends
This Live at the Archway show is in response to the anniversary of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and includes DJs sets from Christian Martir + DJ Bembona, drumming by Legacy Women, a meditative Howl by Liana Naima, and a “magic market” curated by Brooklyn Brujeria. The coordinating In the Gallery exhibit is the culminating Altar a Los Canarios, a participatory installation series honoring the beauty and power of Puerto Ricans, and the need for joy as resistance.
Live at the Archway is always free, always all ages, and always rain or shine.
GETTING TO THE ARCHWAY
The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St.
WHO IS CHIQUITA BRUJITA? Chiquita Brujita is a third generation Nuyorican Bruja, performance artist, and conjurer of fiestas. Best known for her eponymous line of prayer candles, she has worked in partnership with local institutions including El Museo del Barrio, Brooklyn Museum, and Bushwick's House of Yes.
THE GALLERY. Every Live at the Archway, Tfnf’s The Space Station pops up in the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge Brainchild of artist Nathan Sinai Rayman and with a footprint of only 32 square feet, Tfnf’s The Space Station replicates (in flat pack, modular, franchisable form) his DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday – “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth”. Each week, we present an exhibition featuring a DUMBO-based artist and invite the public to create a collaborative piece with the artist over the course of the evening.
