Civic Action
Where:  New York, NY - Van Alen Books, 30 West 22nd St, Ground Floor (map it)
When:   Friday, March 01, 2013

As urban planning and civic projects become more interdisciplinary, Civic Action reconsiders the role that artists and cultural institutions can play. The Noguchi Museum and Socrates Sculpture Park engaged four artists—Natalie Jeremijenko, Mary Miss, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and George Trakas—to lead teams to develop new strategies for community development in the surrounding neighborhood of Long Island City. These partnerships yielded an array of innovative and surprising approaches, and also an argument for new urban planning models. Join Julie Iovine, architecture columnist for The Wall Street Journal, in conversation with Noguchi Museum director Jenny Dixon, Socrates Sculpture Park executive director John Hatfield, and founding principal of WXY Architecture Claire Weisz.
