At the end of July, we went to the opening of No Longer Empty, an exhibition inspired by the High Line and located nearby the in an empty storefront space.
Now, in conjunction with that exhibition, the show's organizers are presenting a panel discussion on public art and alternative art spaces, featuring 7 speakers... including me!
The other panelists include Tom Finkelpearl, Director of the Queens Museum of Art; Anita Durst, Founder of Chashama; Steven Evans, Assistant Director of Dia Beacon; Peter Marcuse, Professor of Urban Planning Emeritus, Columbia University; Sean Slemon, Featured Artist; and Asher Remy-Toledo, No Longer Empty's Curator.
It promises to be a lively discussion of how public art can reclaim and revitalize spaces. Hope to see you there!
