Join Locust Projects for a day-long performance of “America: A Hymnal” on December 6, 2018 as part of Bethany Collins’ solo exhibition, "The Litany". All 100 versions of "My Country 'Tis of Thee" will be sung by volunteers and small choirs continuously throughout the day. In its many lyrical variations, “America: A Hymnal” presents a chronological retelling of American history, politics and culture through one song. Visitors are invited to come and go quietly throughout the day of the performance, which will take place between 10 am to 5 pm on Thursday, December 6.
This exhibition has received support from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant.
