The week may be half over, but the action is just getting started! For the next three days, don’t just see the art, be the art!
Tonight, the Vera List Center for Art & Politics at the New School is hosting a discussion titled Pardon: The Power Nobody Wants. A distinguished selection of guests, including Hon. Dennis Jacobs, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, will explore the history and real-world application of the power of pardon. The panel will examine the critical historical, legal, economic, and ethical issues surrounding the pardon power and the implications of its greater or lesser use.
The Guerrilla Girls are back!
On Thursday the 27th, Occupy Museums enters its second week. After a week of reviews, critiques and bewilderments regarding its premier event last Thursday spread across the internet, the group is back this week with a head of steam. With a clearer message and a call to Bring Your Own Manifesto, Occupy Museums will return to the MoMA to hold another general assembly. Afterwards, march along to the doors of Sotheby’s to stand in solidarity with Teamsters Local 814.
After sparking your desire for discourse with Occupy Museums, head down to Gallatin Galleries for the opening of This is What Democracy Looks Like. While it is not endorsed by the Occupy Wall Street Arts & Culture group, this show at NYU’s gallery on Washington will display work spawned by the OWS movement.
