The public is invited to create a mosaic altar in memory of the Pulse Nightclub shooting victims as part of the ongoing Club EXILE project. Through this workshop, participants will learn the basics of glass cutting and mosaic making while building a platform to hold photographs of the Pulse Victims. We will be working with mirror as our basic material to create mosaics that reference the disco ball and dance floor as a site of community-building. Music, snacks, and drinks set the mood for this club inspired workshop, so feel free to come dressed to dance while you mosaic. The evening will conclude with drag performances inspired by exile and organized by artist and performer, Zac Thompson. The finished altar will be presented during the February 1 opening of MULTIPLE AND ONE, an exhibition of work by Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo. The public is invited to bring any objects they would like to contribute to the memorial objects on the altar during either the workshop or the opening. Visitors to the show opening will be invited to place an electric candle on the altar and illuminate this memorial to the lives lost at Pulse in 2016 and Club Q in 2022.
