Public Think Tank on the High Line

  • High Line 14th Street and 10th Avenue New York, NY 10011 United States (map)

The Public Think Tank is curated by Monument Lab is part of a research residency with the High Line Joint Art Network's New Monuments for New Cities project.

Confirmed Participants: Nadia Elokdah (Grantmakers for the Arts), Nona Faustine (Artist), Molly Rose Kaufman & Khemani Gibson (400 Years of Inequality), Patricia Eunji Kim (New York University), Leigh Claire La Berge (City University of New York), Sheetal Prajapati (Lohar Projects), fayemi shakur (curator/writer), Mountain Pollen (Artist), and Marisa Williamson (Artist). Moderated by Paul Farber (Monument Lab).

Free and Open to the Public. Visitors and Drop-Ins Welcome.

The conversation will circulate around a question posed by Monument Lab: What timely revision would you make to our inherited monuments?

Over the course of two weekends, each Public Think Tank will be comprised of 10 invited guest participants and a moderator sitting in a group in the covered passageway at 14th Street on the High Line, where the New Monuments for New Cities exhibition will be installed. There will be extra seats available for inviting others to join. Each participant will share insights related to their work in the public realm, their interest and investment in public monuments and memory, and their questions related to the prompt. Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be served.

We intend for each conversation to yield a set of notes, keywords, questions, and other insights recorded in audio and documented in a forthcoming Monument Lab research publication produced in conjunction with New Monuments for New Cities.
