There’s a lot going on this week, beautiful people.
Tonight I’m looking forward to the first Public Art Fund Talk at the New School. Michael Sailstorfer will discuss sculpture’s ability to transcend physical form, and I’m looking forward to finding out what that means!
Friday belongs to the Creative Time Summit, and then the always astounding variety show at House of Yes! The last time I went, a guy swallowed a 3-foot balloon-animal balloon and never took it out. Seriously.
Living as Form: Socially Engaged Art from the Last 20 Years
Saturday and Sunday Living As Form will be in full effect! I am looking particularly forward to Reflections on the Economy Inspired by an Elegant Toilet, not only because it contextualizes the economic crisis in terms of toilets but because they are going to serve economic-crisis-inspired food. I’m also thinking about the Spura Soundwalk, Accountability and Socially Engaged Art feels important, and who could miss A Deleuzian Take on Social Practice?
