Monument Lab: Panel & Party

Thursday October 8th: 5:30PM - 8:00PM
Ticket Price: Free

Co-Curator of Monument Lab: Creative Speculations for Philadelphia Paul Farber will be in conversation with Metropolis Magazine Senior Editor Avi Rajagopal to discuss the official opening of their DesignPhiladelphia exhibition, featuring findings from their public art installation and creative research engagement at City Hall last spring. Over 35,000 engaged with the project at the essential civic crossroads of the city. Hear about what the curators discovered from the public proposals collected at the Lab, a cohort of creative speculator artists including Zoe Strauss and the late Terry Adkins, and how they envision 21st century urban monuments.

Support for the research and development of this project has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
