Francheska Alcantara's
Sisterin' in Procession

September 30, 2017
Gather from: 1pm
Procession at: 1:30pm
Kingsbridge Armory
29 W Kingsbridge Rd
Bronx, NY 10468

Sisterin' in Procession will consist of an artistic action alongside Jerome Avenue and surrounding areas in The Bronx spearheaded by local working-class womyn.

Participants will be asked to wear white or red clothing while dragging bars of soap sourced from local stores. The soaps themselves would act as markers and placeholders for the diverse communities living in The Bronx. They would also bring symbolic cleansing to areas affected by displacement and gentrification due de Blasio’s rezoning and housing plans.

Sisterin' in Procession will serve as an act of subversion, a tool of discussion and a historical record of the resilience of working-class communities in The Bronx and beyond.
