The New Museum Announces Schedule for IdeasCity New York

Saturday September 16, 2017
10:00 AM to 7:00 pm

Sara D. Roosevelt Park at Chrystie and Houston Streets

New York, NY… The New Museum is pleased to announce the schedule of events for IdeasCity New York, taking place Saturday, September 16, 2017, at Sara D. Roosevelt Park on Chrystie Street, one block from the New Museum located at 235 Bowery, New York.

IdeasCity, the New Museum’s civic platform that explores the future of cities with art and culture as a driving force, will culminate a two-year cycle of global residencies in Detroit, Athens, and Arles with its biennial program IdeasCity New York. This free and public event, themed around “100 Actions for the Future City,” will be a daylong investigation of strategies, ideas, and propositions featuring artist talks, initiatives by local organizations, performances, workshops, and a panel of mayors including Kasim Reedof Atlanta, Gregor Robertson of Vancouver, and Maurice Cox, former mayor of Charlottesville, VA.

IdeasCity New York will encompass three separate arenas for presentations, discussions, and exchanges, composed of modular structures designed by Thomas Lommée and Christiane Hoegner/OpenStructures.

The main arena on September 16 will be the Forum Stage, where a distinguished roster of participating artists, architects, activists, and community builders will present an array of innovative ideas. Highlights of the 100 Actions for the Future City will include a presentation by Tania Bruguera on migration as civic intervention, David Byrne’s “Reasons to be Cheerful,” a conversation between Rick Lowe and Kemi Ilesanmi on community building, Trevor Paglen’s research on surveillance, a screening by Superflex, and Mel Chin’s presentation of his most recent work.

In conjunction with programming on the Forum Stage, a series of workshops and panel discussions will be held on-site, including a conversation on food and social justice with Ghetto Gastro; workshops on urban activism led by MTL+; Black Gotham walking tours led by Kamau Ware; workshops by the Drawing Center; Crossroads Conversations by Van Alen Institute; Columbia University’s GSAPP debates; a presentation by North Brooklyn Farms and Clocktower Radio; and projects by The Rockefeller Foundation Fellows at IdeasCity. Additionally, an array of food trucks helmed by Hester Street Collaborative and Ghetto Gastro will be stationed along Rivington Street, one block from the festival.
