ArtTable, a professional organization dedicated to advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts, is holding a panel discussion for its Annual Leadership Series. The talk, titled “Arts Partnerships and the Transformation of Cities,” will address questions regarding the role visual art will play in the ongoing development of New York and other cities. In its second year of partnering with the New School, ArtTable will be co-presented by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics and the Center for New York City Affairs, and the New School, with Hyperallergic as a media sponsor.
The panel is slated to consist of five participants: Laurie Beckelman, associate director of the Shed, a nonprofit, cultural organization under development in the Hudson Yards; Sarah Calderon, managing director of ArtPlace America, a collaborative organization that focuses on community planning and development; Eva Franch i Gilabert, the chief curator and executive director of Storefront for Art and Architecture, an experimental forum and exhibition space concerned with the built environment; Deborah Rappaport, co-founder of Minnesota Street Project, which seeks to create economically sustainable spaces for art galleries, artists, and related nonprofits; and Regina R. Smith, managing director of the arts and culture program at the Kresge Foundation, which looks to encourage the inclusion of arts and culture in community development and urban planning practices. The moderator is Christy MacLear, vice chairman of Art Agency, Partners, an art advisory firm.
This discussion comes on the heels of the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs and a group of artists and activists releasing competing cultural plans. It seems like ArtTable is poised to shed more light on these complex issues about which many stakeholders are deeply concerned.
When: Monday, October 23, 6–8 pm
Where: The New School, (John L. Tishman Auditorium, 63 5th Ave, Greenwich Village, Manhattan)
