In homage to Gordon Matta-Clark’s community project FOOD, the XM Café will feature local chefs as well as artists who incorporate food as part of their social practice. This month, Jhal NYC will share Bangladeshi street food as well as conversations on immigration and community building. Joining the evening will be musicians Ifti & The Royal Bengal Tea House. ABOUT JHAL NYC Jhal NYC is a social entrepreneurship venture built to empower the Bangali New York community through food. We employ stay at home mothers and new immigrants, help build their language skills, and prepare them for careers they seek to transition to. More than anything, we are creating a community for these marginalized groups. Jhal NYC was created to shine light on the distinct Bangali- New York culture that we grew up in. The taste of the Bangali food we were raised on, the aesthetic and sound of the streets of New York. We adorn our presence with the faces of those like Tagore and Kazi Nazrul because their words are the ones our family sung. It's more than just about food, it's us.

Compass Song - Times Square
Through August 03, 2018 - New York

Compass Song was commissioned by and created in residence with Times Square Arts. As you turn on the app, plug in your headphones and walk through Times Square, a voice will accompany your wanderings with poems about searching for freedom, reflections on navigating the city, and cross-cultural myths about the cardinal directions, woven through with quotes from and reworkings of Walk With Me, the African-American spiritual turned Civil Rights freedom song. The voice in Compass Song is always underscored by a drone, a unique harmony that translates the latitude and longitude data for Times Square into sound and modulates as you walk north, south, east, or west. Interspersed with this are vocal performances of the sounds of Ti... (read more)
