Event Description

Living as Form, a Creative Time exhibition including over 100 artists and projects, 25 curators, 6 new commissions, and 3 public talks, kicks off on May 18 with "Participation and Spectacle: Where Are We Now?," a free public talk by curator and art historian Claire Bishop, Associate Professor in the Ph.D. Program in Art History at The Graduate Center, CUNY, moderated by Mariam Ghani, artist and teacher at The Cooper Union School of Art. The event is the first in a series of talks surrounding socially engaged artistic practices, offering an opportunity for artists and audiences to raise key questions and further discussion around this complex field of cultural production.  "Participation and Spectacle: Where Are We Now?" will be held on Wednesday, May 18 from 6:30–8:00pm in the Rose Auditorium at The Cooper Union, located at 41 Cooper Square in New York City.  All Living as Form talks are free and open to the public, and no RSVP is required. 


Living as Form is an unprecedented international exhibition exploring over 20 years of cultural works that blur the forms of art and everyday life, and emphasize participation, dialogue, and community engagement. The exhibition—curated by Nato Thompson—will take place September 23–October 16, and will provide a broad look at a vast array of socially engaged practices that appear with increasing regularity in fields ranging from theater to activism, and urban planning to visual art.  Living as Form will bring together 25 curators, document over 100 artists' projects in a large-scale survey exhibition at the historic Essex Street Market building, and create six new commissions in the surrounding neighborhood. In addition, a dynamic online archive of over 400 socially engaged projects is being developed, along with a book to further an understanding of the breadth and complexity of this field.
