A Talking Parrot, A High School Drama Class, A Punjabi TV Show, The Oldest Song in the World, A Museum Artwork, And a Congregation's Call to Action Circle Through New York
Exhibition, Six venues, New York, US.
A new project commissioned through the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative has been launched after more than a year of research and planning. Artists Lenka Clayton and Jon Rubin, together with the Guggenheim and five other sites, undergo a six-month presentation that brings together city communities often separated by cultural, economic, geographic, or circum antial boundaries. The artists have drawn an imaginary circle through Harlem, the South Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan’s Upper East Side and invited six public venues along the circle’s path to participate in a system of social and material exchange. These spaces serve as the project’s co-creators and hosts.
