Join Michelle Levy in conversation with RU Executive Director Nathalie Anglès and curator Bartek Remisko for an evening that uses the PAULINA project as a case study to explore how independent artists can develop, pursue, be responsive to, and sustain ambitious, large-scale projects.

In 2018, New York-based artist Michelle Levy stepped away from a 10-year director position in the arts to pursue her dream artistic project abroad. Prompted by the discovery of one woman’s striking Holocaust story that came into Levy’s care, Levy cultivated a web of partnerships in Poland to conduct research and public engagement to explore this story through a contemporary lens, raising funds as she went along. The heart of the project was a cross-cultural collaboration with Polish Jewish artist and writer, Patrycja Dołowy, who went on a journey with Levy across Poland and Ukraine, following their heroine’s wartime path. The result is PAULINA, an evolving performance work shaped by twists and turns of events, accidental meetings, and unexpected discoveries. It has been presented in various iterations throughout Poland and New York. Its final chapter, which Levy is now developing, will be a feature-length film.
