Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
The Shed, the Public Art Fund, and the West Kowloon Cultural District are ambitious projects that envision their cities as hosts for dynamic spaces making art available to the community. Join Alex Poots, founding chief executive and artistic director of The Shed; Suhanya Raffel, executive director of the M+ Museum, part of the West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong; and Nicholas Baume, director and chief curator of the New York Public Art Fund to discuss creative spaces and community. This discussion will examine the role of arts and culture in contemporary global society, the relationship between the individual and community, and the synergies between economic growth and cultural enterprise. Moderated by Cassim Shepard, adjunct assistant professor at Columbia GSAPP.
This program is made possible by The Kai-Yin Lo Distinguished Program Series which aims to create a platform to discuss the role of Asian arts and culture in contemporary society.
