Schedule of Activities:

Interactive Sculpture: Sinisa Kukec, Sympathy for the Stone

7 - 10 pm | CAC Warehouse

Sympathy For The Stone (2022) is a time-based, interactive sculpture relying heavily on active viewer participation, that encourages visitors to (responsibly) throw stones at a large-scale sculpture composed of 19 hexagonal aluminum mirrors, based on The James Webb Space Telescope. Participation is free with exhibition RSVP.

Performance: Naama Tsabar, Melodies of Certain Damage

7:30 - 8 pm and 8:30 - 9 pm | CAC 1st Floor Gallery

Two public performances featuring New Orleans-area musicians performing on broken guitars created by artist Naama Tsabar’s series Melody of Certain Damage, which appropriates the iconic and overtly macho trope of breaking a guitar. Admission is free with exhibition RSVP. Capacity is limited.

Continuous Screening: Imagine: A Video Anthology of Black Thoughts by Octavia Yearwood

7 - 10 pm | CAC Black Box Theater
