Add to Calendar
Join The School of Art at The Cooper Union for an informal conversation between esteemed curator/writer Lucy Lippard, artist/critic Gregory Sholette, and members of the former art collective REPOhistory.
Between 1989 and 2000, REPOhistory actively repossessed the forgotten, overlooked, and suppressed histories of working class men, women, and children through site-specific installations of graphic street-signs planted on the streets of New York City and elsewhere. This conversation with students, faculty, and the acadmic community is held in conjunction with the exhibition, Ruptures:Forms of Public Address, and will reflect on REPOhistory and other aspects of engaged art and activism.
Seats are limited and RSVP is required. Please RSVP by clicking here: http://rupturescooperart.eventbrite.com/
