Sam Durant Charrette
Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery
Charrette with artist Sam Durant and Parsons class:
3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Presentation: 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Both events open to the public
In this charrette, claims of advertising and branding intended to generate desire, are severed from their products and turned into political claims. Durant will work with students to mine advertisements and branding campaigns to create “protest” signs timed to the upcoming elections.
A conversation between Sam Durant and Janet Kraynak will follow at 6:30 p.m.
This charrette is hosted by Parsons and Eugene Lang College faculty member Janet Kraynak.
