P.S. 1 NeoHooDoo: Art for a Forgotten Faith

NeoHooDoo: Art for a Forgotten Faith is a stunning sculptural, visual, and olefactory experience discussing ritualism, spiritualism, and artistic production of a great display of talented artists.

NeoHooDoo, a phrase coined by the poet Ishmael Reed in 1970, celebrates the practice of rituals, folklore, and spirituality in the Americas beyond the scope of organized religion. The endurance of these centuries-old traditions of magic and healing.
