[WORLD PREMIERE] Jonathan González: Lucifer Landing II
Jonathan González’s Lucifer Landing II draws intersections between black life and current geopolitical movements to imagine lateralized intimacy on a damaged planet. Informed by concepts championed by June Jordan, Buckminster Fuller and the Lower East Side Nuyorican collective CHARAS, González exhausts mechanisms of the ‘epic’ in human innovation and the theatrical conventions of classical opera to fathom the possibility of living and dying well.
Lucifer Landing I will be presented at MoMA PS1 from Friday, April 19 through Sunday, April 21, 2019.
Jonathan González is an artist, educator, and amateur farmer from Queens, NY. Their work investigates notions of blackness related to economies of creative production, and geopolitcal efforts in Urban Planning & Sustainability. They are a 2018-19 Workspace Resident at LMCC, NARS International A.I.R. (2018), and Bessie-nominated director for ZERO (2018) at Danspace Project.
