Thursday, January 20, 2011 | 8:15-10:15 PM | 92nd Street Y | 1395 Lexington Ave
Last chance! Join us tomorrow at 92nd Street Y for a conversation with artists Sanford Biggers, K8 Hardy, Emily Jacir, Maya Lin, Walid Raad, and Swoon. Hear their stories, findings, and revelations from their travels around the globe—from urban cultural centers to remote natural ecosystems—over the course of two years to investigating burning questions central to their practice while immersing themselves in new cultures and communities.
Topics of their research and practice include mass extinctions due to environmental change (Maya Lin), the burgeoning infrastructure for the visual arts in the Arab world (Walid Raad), the cultural hybridization of Brazil (Sanford Biggers), fringe queer culture in South America (K8 Hardy), immigrant activism in urban Italy (Emily Jacir), and rebuilding housing and communities in post-earthquake Haiti (Swoon).
