Re-Past: Remembering Malaga

artists
Myron M. Beasley
award
$5,000 Awarded
 

Re-Past is a site-specific memorial to be held on Malaga Island.  As an intervention in the form of a performative dinner, Re-Past will engage the public-at-large to remember the people of Malaga who were evicted from their homes on July 1, 1912, because they were black or mixed-race. This narrative has come to be known as the story best not told in the history of Maine. The performance will be a collaborative event including dancers, a printmaker, a sound architect, a chef and painter/cartographer. Re-Past is a memorial to the dead and the living.
