In the Open: Art in Public Spaces
Krzysztof Wodiczko interviewed by Giuliana Bruno
Off the page and onto the stage, BOMB Magazine presents a new series of conversations between artists, architects, and theoreticians working in the public realm. Join us for the first installment this month at SculptureCenter, co-sponsored by Art21:
Monday, October 29, 7 PM
44-19 Purves St.
Long Island City, NYC
FREE to the Public!
Krzysztof Wodiczko, Director of the Center for Art, Culture, and Technology at MIT, animates architecture and public monuments by projecting stories and histories onto them. In this way, technology becomes an apparatus for projecting the self outward, for the collection of memory. Set in the midst of the body politic, his art acts as an instrument of knowledge. Giuliana Bruno, author, cultural theorist and professor of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard, will interview the artist.
Filmed with the participation of its audience, BOMBLive! events happen in a variety of settings throughout New York City.
