The Exciting Art Events You Won't Want to Miss This Autumn

Slave Rebellion Reenactment (Dread Scott’s powerful community-focused performance) forms the basis of this new exhibition. The original event, which took place over two days and spanned 24 miles in 2019, commemorated the German Coast Uprising of 1811, the largest rebellion of enslaved people in US history. It saw re-enactors in period dress march from outside New Orleans into the city’s Congo Square, against a contemporary backdrop of urban and suburban sprawl. This New York show archives this incredible event, with performance stills and protest objects from the procession.
