Artist Talk: Wednesday 23 March, 4pm
Theaster Gates’ video work Gone Are the Days of Shelter and Martyr (2014) will be one of the first exhibitions to be shown at Rosebud, the Rose Art Museum's new satellite gallery in downtown Waltham. Rosebud showcases works from the Museum’s collection of video art in a shop-front space.
Gates’ film, which was first presented at the 2015 Venice Biennale, takes place inside the now demolished Roman Catholic Church of St. Laurence on South Side of Chicago. Gates and collaborators from his music ensemble The Black Monks of Mississippi filmed a performance amid the wreckage of the Church, which had gradually fallen into disuse and disrepair.
A public talk by Gates titled ‘A Cursory Sermon on Art and the City’ will be held on Wednesday 23 March at 4pm in the Wasserman Cinematheque at the Sachar International Center, Brandeis University, 415 South Street, Waltham, MA.
