A Private Gallery Tour with Dread Scott of his SLAVE REBELLION REENACTMENT Exhibition

On Thursday Dec 9, 6:00 pm, Dread Scott will conduct a private benefit tour of the current exhibition of photographs and handmade flags from Slave Rebellion Reenactment at Cristin Tierney Gallery. An opportunity to view materials related to this groundbreaking artwork, to participate in a talk and q&a with the artist, and to support Revolution Books.

For two days in November 2019, artist Dread Scott brought together hundreds of re-enactors in a powerful performance piece. In period costume, they retraced the path of the largest rebellion of enslaved people in U.S. history, the German Coast Uprising of 1811.

$150 (includes premium ticket to Dec 3 event with Dread Scott in Conversation with Andy Zee at Revolution Books - info here*)

"It had a small but real chance of succeeding -- what would that have meant for US and world history? Imagine a successful rebellion, a revolution, of the enslaved and degraded today -- what would that mean for humanity and the planet?" -- Dread Scott

Revolution Books...about the world, for a radically different world.

At a moment when the planet and future of humanity are in peril...when so many are agonizing over where things are headed yet dreaming of something far better... Revolution Books is where you find the way out of the madness. Here the search for the truth meets the poetic spirit--with authors, films, and performance. Here you find the most radical revolution in the work and leadership of Bob Avakian who has developed the new communism aimed at the emancipation of humanity. A revolution to overthrow this system, and create a society and world in which human beings can truly flourish and the imagination can soar.
