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!
