Sanctuary X

Sanctuary X
Pratt Institute is a Sanctuary Campus, which means there is protection for students that are undocumented immigrants. However, many campuses across the States are contentious battlegrounds for Sanctuary status, and administrations are trying to figure out how this relates to recent travel restrictions.

RECALLed 7-Eleven Intervention

AIOP RECALLED EVITE-01

VIDEO PROJECTION AND PERFORMANCE at Lodge Galley

A curated show from Art in Odd Places

7-Eleven Intervention focuses on the monopoly of chain stores in NYC, the demise of mom-and-pop shops and the displacement of residents. This video performance investigates a corporate-makeover-culture that presumes a branding of the neighborhood, that levies an economic model both locally and globally.

PROPOSITION, PRACTICE, & CONTRADICTION

The Queens Museum Open AIR Artist Services Program
is excited to partner with the New York City-based Pedagogy Group
in examining the intersection between pedagogy, art, and social change.
Members of the group will present a series of brief examples drawn from
their work. These cases will be the point of departure for a community
conversation about methodologies for educational practices that investigate
and analyze social contradictions, build political literacy, and support
community-based political organizing.

This tool uses the fun of the cootie catcher game to begin dialogs about why and how we do the work we do.

DIALOGUE TOOL

Slide1

Let’s Talk About This: A Tool for Dialogue
