Tonight, Creative Time will sponsor a ritual performed by artists AA Bronson and Peter Hobbs in an undisclosed location in New Orleans, beginning at dusk. Bronson and Hobbs' Invocation of the Queer Spirits will draw on New Orleans' unique cultural history as an enclave for marginalized populations as well as the mysterious, spiritual nature of the city. The hope is that this ceremony will conjure this energy and "christen" New Orleans as a site, once again, for creativity and cultural production. In an adjoining interview, Creative Time's President and Artistic Director Anne Pasternak speaks with AA Bronson about spirituality and healing in his practice, which spans almost 40 years.
