Constantina Zavitsanos: Speculative Planning Session with Fred Moten and Stefano Harney
Constantina Zavitsanos’s residency “THIS COULD BE US” includes a series of research-driven programs organized around speculative concepts of planning, contingency, and care. Not only is care one of the primary sources of surplus value within capitalism, as feminists have argued, it is also critical to social organization. http://www.newmuseum.org/calendar/view/constantina-zavitsanos-speculative-planning-session-with-fred-moten-and-stefano-harney

Make No Little Plans: A CONVERSATION IN TWO PARTS: Part 1. Toward A Plausible Utopia
As the speed of technological innovation accelerates, life in the twenty-first century metropolis is coming closer to fulfilling the predictions of science-fiction writers of decades past, and not always for the best. Many of the most apocalyptic scenarios envisioned by novelists—extreme overcrowding, conflict driven by climate change, the crisis of capitalism, mass uprisings—have also become all too familiar. Could it be that the solutions to today’s challenges are already written? What can architects learn from the wild speculations of their literary heroes? Two of today’s most acclaimed voices from the fields of architecture and science fiction discuss their visions for life in the near-future metropolis. Bjarke Ingels Architect, Founder, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), and Cofounder, KiBiSi Design Group Bjarke Ingels is renowned for his innovative approach to sustainable development and renewable energy, and his acclaimed architectural practice, BIG, operates within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research, and development. BIG was recently selected as the designer of a $335 million storm defense system to defend lower Manhattan from future floods, as well as the new Google campus in Palo Alto, California, in association with Thomas Heatherwick. Kim Stanley Robinson American science-fiction novelist Robinson is best known for his award winning Mars Trilogy (1993–99), in which humans, in light of environmental catastrophe, are forced to colonize the planet Mars. His books address issues revolving around the imminent warming of our planet as well as the dark sides of capitalism and democracy. He has been invited to speak at multiple fiction and science-fiction conferences as well as the “Rethinking Capitalism” conference at the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 2011.

“Albert Oehlen: Man in the Mirror,” Keynote Lecture by Mark Godfrey
In the early to mid-1980s, Albert Oehlen worked on two main series: self-portraits and interiors with mirrors embedded in them. In one, he presented a degraded image of the artist; in the other, an incoherent image of the viewer. Starting with these works, Mark Godfrey will look at how Oehlen continued to work on the idea of degradation even as he began abstract painting in the late 1980s. Though Godfrey will focus on Oehlen’s abstract work, his talk will also consider the artist’s interior collages and recent series of tree paintings. http://www.newmuseum.org/calendar/view/albert-oehlen-home-and-garden-keynote-lecture-by-mark-godfrey

“Albert Oehlen: Home and Garden,” Contemporary Painting Symposium—Panel 2: Digital Abstraction
PANEL 2: Digital Abstraction Panelists: Kerstin Brätsch, Florian Meisenberg, and Ken Okiishi Moderator: Alexander Galloway This panel will hone in on abstract painting influenced by digital imaging techniques, digital technologies, and new/post media theory. Such practices may pose questions about painting or art itself, building on the historical tensions between abstraction and representation, or are incidentally, yet inexorably symptomatic of the expanded possibilities for image-making in recent years. The panel will explore the timeliness of this recent iteration of digital abstraction, with three artists who variously work through issues such as: how gesture, expression, and authenticity might continue to be possible in a contemporary image-based culture; whether our digital era truly produces an ahistorical condition in which images and marks have no specific reference and no relevant point of origin; how structures of and interfaces with digital technologies have necessitated new models for thinking about memory, distribution, and reproduction, as well as degradation, rupture, breakdown, and the void; and how the ubiquity of the screen in all aspects of life has given rise to a renewed interest in the relationship between two-dimensional and three-dimensional space, with a refreshed focus on tromp l’oeil and “topographical” painting.

Make No Little Plans: A CONVERSATION IN TWO PARTS: Part 2. Policy and The Invisible City
As more and more people flock toward urban areas, the size and complexity of cities is growing exponentially. As a consequence, the designers shaping the cities of the future must engage with an increasingly challenging set of hypothetical conditions—critical scenarios that remain invisible in the day-to-day lives of today’s inhabitants. In light of the entreaty made by Daniel Burnham (author of Chicago’s seminal modern master plan) to “make no little plans,” how will urbanists, architects, and activists think about creating a habitat that anticipates drastic future change, overcrowding, and climate change? What are the guiding principles in an architecture that is preventative? This discussion will analyze both the extraordinary challenges of designing for unpredictable conditions, accelerated change, and the new opportunities that arise when one takes radical change into account.

Panel Discussion: Maps for The Invisible City
To make a map is an inherently political act. By documenting that which is unfamiliar and invisible, maps define our universe; they not only document the organization of physical space, but shape its future form. Cartography is almost as ancient as humanity itself, yet it is undergoing unprecedented change. Once drawn and managed by an elite few, maps are increasingly collaborative, open, fluid, and freely accessible. What is cartography’s potential as a form of activism in the twenty-first century? What will the map’s role be in shaping the city of the future? How can it guide us through the Invisible City? Steve Coast Founder, OpenStreetMap Steve Coast is a British entrepreneur. In 2004, he founded the OpenStreetMap (OSM), a community-based world-mapping project dubbed by the Guardian as “the Wikipedia of maps,” thanks to its millions of contributors across the world. OSM has not just created a platform for individuals to map everything from cities to hiking trails, footpaths, and local services, but also slums in Sub-Saharan Africa that previously translated into blank spots on most online maps. William Rankin Founder, Radical Cartography William Rankin is a historian and cartographer. His mapping activity is focused on reimagining everyday urban and territorial geographies as complex landscapes of statistics, law, and history. His maps have appeared in publications such as Perspecta, Harvard Design Magazine, and National Geographic and in exhibitions at Harvard University, Pratt Institute, the Cartographic Biennial in Lausanne, Triennale di Milano, and the Toronto Images Festival. Rankin’s maps traveled for several years with the Independent Curators International’s “Experimental Geographies” exhibition. He teaches at Yale University, where he is Assistant Professor of History of Science.

“Albert Oehlen: Home and Garden,” Contemporary Painting Symposium—Panel I: Contemporary Abstraction
Panel I: Contemporary Abstraction Panelists: Josh Smith, Mika Tajima, and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung Moderator: Maria Lind This first panel of the one-day symposium will focus on the resurgence of abstraction in the last several years, particularly in painting. It will investigate what distinguishes these recent experiments, conceptually and materially, from earlier practices, making the case that new abstraction is symptomatic of and bound to the present moment. Bringing together three painters with distinct oeuvres—that have been, at times, linked to the legacy of German painting, or even of Albert Oehlen himself—the panel will consider abstract painting in relation to other contemporary manifestations of abstraction in economics (market speculation), philosophy (anti-essentialist thought, questions around the structure of time, semiotics), digital culture (sampling, rendering), and aesthetics more generally (considerations of form, the notion of style). http://www.newmuseum.org/calendar/view/albert-oehlen-home-and-garden-contemporary-painting-symposium

IDEAS CITY Keynote: The Honorable Julián Castro
The Honorable Julián Castro Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development As three-term mayor of San Antonio, Julián Castro was known for innovative governance. His “Decade of Downtown” program campaigned for new investments in San Antonio’s city center and older communities and brought in $350 million of private sector money, generating more than 2,400 housing units. In 2010, Castro was enrolled in the World Economic Forum’s list of Young Global Leaders and named by Time magazine as one of its “40 under 40” list of notable leaders in American politics. At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, he became the first Latino to deliver a keynote. Castro took office as the sixteenth Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development on July 28, 2014. Introduction by Melissa Mark-Viverito Melissa Mark-Viverito currently serves as the Speaker of the New York City Council, the first Puerto Rican and Latina to hold a citywide elected position. She worked for over a decade in local activism, nonprofit organizations, and labor before being elected to the City Council in 2005. In 2009, she was elected to her second term in the City Council, during which she served as Chair of the Committee on Parks and Recreation, the founding Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus, and a member of the Black, Latino and Asian Caucus. In 2011, Mark-Viverito was one of four Council Members to pioneer the first Participatory Budgeting process in New York City. Closing remarks by Ben Hecht Ben Hecht was appointed President and CEO of Living Cities in July 2007. Since that time, the organization has adopted a broad, integrative agenda that harnesses the collective knowledge of its twenty-two member foundations and financial institutions to benefit low-income people and the cities where they live. Currently, he is Chairman of EveryoneOn, a national initiative founded by the Federal Communications Commission to connect low-income Americans to digital opportunity, and he sits on the National Advisory Board for StriveTogether and on Duke University’s Center for Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) Advisory Council. IDEAS CITY is a major collaborative initiative between hundreds of arts, education, and civic organizations centered on the belief that culture is fundamentally vital to urban growth and innovation. This keynote address anchored three days of conferences, debates, performances, activities on the street, and artistic interventions that transformed the Bowery neighborhood in downtown Manhattan into a multi-platform incubator that examined urban issues, propose solutions, and seed concrete actions. The Festival took place May 28–30, 2015, and this year’s theme—The Invisible City—explored questions of transparency and surveillance, citizenship and representation, expression and suppression, and the enduring quest for visibility.

IDEAS CITY Keynote: Seeing Through the Noise: Lawrence Lessig
In the information age, we are increasingly dependent on global-network infrastructures that are as invisible as they are vast. These networks dictate the dynamics of decision-making and the shape of power structures, from government records and trading platforms to the seemingly more “democratic” web and social media. How, as citizens, do we relate to the networks, infrastructures, and technologies that underpin urban life today? What role, if any, do they play in promoting justice and accountability, thereby shaping the future of society? How can art and culture encourage awareness of the centrality of data in twenty-first-century life? Lawrence Lessig Director, Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, Harvard University Lawrence Lessig is a proponent of reduced legal restrictions on copyright, trademark, and the radio frequency spectrum, particularly in technology applications. In May 2014, he launched a crowd-funded political action committee, which he termed Mayday PAC, with the purpose of electing candidates to Congress who would pass campaign finance reform. Lessig is a founding board member of Creative Commons and Founder of Rootstrikers.

Panel Discussion: Full Disclosure and the Morality of Information
Everything we do, from messaging our friends to streaming music to using public transportation, generates information. 90 percent of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone, and its sheer volume means that a vast proportion of our lives exists as an invisibile online record of our identities, interests, and affiliations. Yet even after recent revelations of mass collection on the part of governments, we take surprisingly little interest in what happens to our data. This panel will comprise internationally renowned researchers, activists, and geographers whose work is organized around the practice of making visible, through art and activism, the critical importance of data and privacy to the perpetuation of democracy in the twenty-first century. Trevor Paglen Artist, Geographer, and Author Trevor Paglen is credited with coining the term “Experimental Geography” to describe practices coupling experimental cultural production and art-making with ideas from critical human geography about the production of space, materialism, and praxis. Paglen’s visual work has been exhibited in museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, and Tate Modern, London. Christopher Soghoian Principal Technologist and Senior Policy Analyst, ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project Between 2009 and 2010, Christopher Soghoian was the first in-house technologist at the Federal Trade Commission’s Division of Privacy and Identity Protection, where he worked on investigations of Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Netflix. Prior to joining the FTC, he co-created the Do Not Track privacy anti-tracking mechanism now adopted by all of the major web browsers. His PhD, completed at Indiana University in 2012, focused on the role that third-party service providers play in facilitating law enforcement surveillance of their customers. Jillian C. York Director for International Freedom of Expression, Electronic Frontier Foundation Jillian C. York’s work focuses on free expression, particularly in the Arab world. She has written for a variety of publications, including Al Jazeera, the Atlantic, the Guardian, Foreign Policy, and CNN. York recently contributed a chapter to the volume Beyond WikiLeaks: Implications for the Future of Communications, Journalism and Society (2013). Gabriella Coleman (moderator) Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy, Art History and Communication Studies Department, McGill University Trained as an anthropologist, Gabriella Coleman teaches, conducts research, and writes on computer hackers.

“We All Hung Out”: Artists and Community on the Bowery
“We All Hung Out” is a panel discussion with David Diao, Mary Heilmann, and Billy Sullivan, moderated by Ethan Swan, editor of the New Museum publication Bowery Artist Tribute. “Living in Chatham Square, on the Bowery…where we all hung out, was the beginning of my having a sense that community was an important part of the work. Before, my model for being an artist was this sort of lone-person up in a garret, where you work all alone all day and then you go out to a bar and just get drunk and get in a fight and then sleep all morning and get back into it. That changed in those years.” —Mary Heilmann, quoted in Bowery Artist Tribute, 2010 Lured by cheap rents and vast lofts, artists began populating the Bowery in the late 1950s. By 1965, there were over one hundred painters living along the Bowery, among them Cy Twombly, Robert Indiana, Al Loving, and Elizabeth Murray. While the lofts themselves remained the primary attraction, with each new artist’s arrival, a second draw emerged: a growing artistic community. This unplanned, creative network impacted hundreds of artists, accelerating the exchange of ideas, generating systems for sharing resources, and staving off the isolation and self-doubt of a studio practice. In conjunction with Lower East Side History Month, this panel discussion invites three painters who have lived and worked on the Bowery to reflect on this creative community and the effect it’s had on their individual practices. David Diao (b. 1943) is a painter whose work has often been described as “Conceptual Abstraction.” Grounded in monochrome fields and flat, geometric forms, Diao’s works look critically at personal, political, and art historical narratives. In 2014, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut, presented “David Diao: Front to Back,” a midcareer retrospective exhibition, and the Whitney Museum of American Art included his work in its biennial. Mary Heilmann (b. 1940) is one of the preeminent artists of her generation—a pioneering painter whose work injects abstraction with elements from popular culture and craft traditions. A “painter’s painter,” Heilmann is known for a straightforward, seemingly loose and casual approach that belies a witty dialogue with art historical preconceptions. Her museum retrospective “To Be Someone,” organized by the Orange County Museum of Art, toured the US from 2007 to 2009 and traveled to the New Museum in 2008. The paintings, drawings, and photographs of Billy Sullivan (b. 1946) are tribes to the beauty of fleeting moments. Each portrait acts as a document of time, freezing such natural acts as eating, reading, or resting. In 2007, Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton, New York, mounted Sullivan’s first one-person museum survey, and his work was shown in the 2006 Whitney Biennial.

Panel Discussion: Hope and Unrest in The Invisible City
Jonathas de AndradeRosanne Haggerty Yto Barrada Micah White Jonathan Bowles (moderator) The age of network culture offers new, powerful tools for individual and collective expression, and in response, the act of protest is rapidly evolving; individuals, groups, and entire communities once conveniently invisible to decision-makers are self-organizing to make their voices heard. From Cairo to Istanbul and from Barcelona to São Paulo, the sight of public squares inundated by a sea of protesters has become one of the key images of our time. At the same time, an increasing number of people—the poor, the homeless, the elderly, the mentally ill, and undocumented immigrants, to name just a few groups—are disappearing from sight. How do the disenfranchised find representation in the city today? Is there a cartography to guide those who have wandered or been driven from the center? This panel will analyze the social and political crises triggered by new technologies, the shifts in the balance of power within society they are bringing about, and the role of art in defining a new paradigm of social justice. Jonathas de Andrade Artist Jonathas de Andrade lives and works in Recife, Brazil, and creates art that investigates cultural phenomena that are in danger of vanishing. He has participated in the 12th Lyon Biennial (2013), the 2nd New Museum Triennial (2012), the 12th Istanbul Biennial (2011), the 29th São Paulo Biennial (2010), and the 7th Mercosul Biennial (2009). In 2012, he received a special jury prize for the Future Generation Art Prize Exhibition at the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, Kyiv, Ukraine. Rosanne Haggerty President, Community Solutions A recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Rosanne Haggerty is President and CEO of Community Solutions, a non-profit organization working to strengthen communities and end homelessness. In 1990, she founded Common Ground Community and reopened the legendary Times Square Hotel as a place for homeless and low-income residents, thereby reducing homelessness by 87 percent in the twenty-block vicinity surrounding it. In 2012, Haggerty was awarded the Jane Jacobs Medal for New Ideas and Activism. Yto Barrada Artist Yto Barrada was born in Paris and grew up in Tangier, Morocco. She studied history and political science at the Sorbonne and photography at the International Center for Photography. Her work moves across photography, film, publications, and installation, and engages with the specific situation of Tangier as a transitory locale. She is the cofounder of the Cinémathèque de Tanger and a member of the Beirut-based Arab Image Foundation. Barrada’s work was recently featured in the exhibition “Here and Elsewhere” at the New Museum. Micah White Co-creator, Occupy Wall Street, former Editor, Adbusters magazine, and Founder, Boutique Activist Consultancy Driven by the belief that social change movements like Occupy are too focused on urban environments, Micah White moved to Nehalem, Oregon. He sees rural towns as “clean slate[s] for building social change,” where inhabitants are still recovering from the economic and environmental impacts of the capitalist system that Occupy fought against. His new for-profit firm, Boutique Activist Consultancy, specializes in “impossible campaigns.” White argues that to be a full-time activist, you must have an income. Jonathan Bowles (moderator) Executive Director, Center for an Urban Future Since 2002, Jonathan Bowles has been Executive Director of the Center for an Urban Future, a Manhattan-based think tank dedicated to independent research about key policy issues facing New York City and other cities. Under Bowles’s direction, the Center authored an acclaimed study about the significant impact immigrant entrepreneurs are having on cities’ economies, a study about New York City’s innovation economy, as well as a report about how to retain and grow New York City’s middle class.
