CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT

This program will explore four projects that challenged and engaged viewers throughout Philadelphia in the fall of 2017: Monument Lab, Philadelphia Assembled, Speech/Acts, and Symphony for a Broken Orchestra.

This conversation will begin with an overview of each project and will continue by exploring points of connection between the work, such as the concept of “the event” as a way to mark and record social history alongside the growing influence of the event production industry on cultural production today.

The audience will be invited to engage the speakers in a dialogue about their projects during a question and answer session.

This event is co-sponsored by the Museum Council of Greater Philadelphia. For more information about its work: click here to visit the webisite and click here to visit the Facebook page
