Locust Projects will be presenting The Litany by Chicago-based conceptual artist Bethany Collins in their Main Gallery. In the center of Locust Projects’ Main Gallery is “My destiny is in your hands”, an installation covered with white embossed wallpaper on which Collins makes use of the official state flowers of the American South to memorialize moments of repeated violence throughout American history.
As part of the project, a day-long durational performance on December 6 from 10 am to 5 pm will take place, where 100 versions of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” will be sung by volunteers and small choirs continuously throughout the day. In our Project Room, Miami-based artist Michael Loveland will be present In Process: Civic Sculpture, a site-specific installation using painting and sculpture to communicate the artist’s efforts to preserve the Palm Grove neighborhood.
OPENING EVENT: DECEMBER 4, 6PM TO 8PM
ON DISPLAY: DECEMBER 4 - 8, 10AM TO PM
