What would you do if you were among the last people on earth? British multimedia artist Shezad Dawood and the Red Hook community together imagine life after a monumental disaster. The result is It was a time that was a time, an experimental post-apocalyptic film at the center of Dawood’s first major US solo exhibition. Shot on the beaches of Far Rockaway, Coney Island, and Staten Island, this film investigates the lasting effects of Hurricane Sandy and envisions building a new society from the ruins of an environmental catastrophe. In addition to the commissioned film, Pioneer Works will display work in textile, neon, and video from the MoMA and Tate alum.
