Christopher Myers presents A Mass for Strange Children, in conjunction with his exhibition, The Hands of Strange Children, at James Cohan's 52 Walker Street location. Myers engages with several of his frequent collaborators to create a series of performance vignettes relating to the syncretic revolutionaries he depicts in stained glass and tapestry works. These vignettes follow the structure of a Catholic mass, but are infused with other performative source material including Hummingbirds, House Music, Beheadings, Tap dance, Punk, Scrying, and Abattoirs.
Featuring: Helga Davis, Vuyo Sotashe, Reylon Yount, Kaneza Schaal, Sifiso Mabena, Ben Jalosa Williams, Anthony Dean, Yulan Grant, Ian Askew & Justin Allen.
The performance will take place on Friday, April 1 at 7:30 PM at the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association at 62 Mott Street.
