Park Avenue Armory, Studio Museum In Harlem Team Up For UES Arts Symposium

The Studio Museum in Harlem, which is currently without a permanent location during the construction of its new 125th Street building, is teaming up with the Park Avenue Armory to hold a one-day art symposium on the Upper East Side.

The third annual “Culture in a Changing America” will be held at the armory on February 17, 2019, and feature keynote speeches, open studios and interactive workshops, according to the armory’s website.

One highlight of the event include a concluding panel moderated by The Studio Museum in Harlem’s Director and Chief Curator Thelma Golden featuring dancer Bill T. Jones, musician Toshi Reagon, artist Julie Mehretu and Kennedy Center Vice President and Artistic Director of Social Impact Marc Bamuthi Joseph reports Patch.

The symposium will be split into three sessions with different tracks focused on art’s relationship to identity and activist. Some workshops that will be explored during sessions include “race & performance,” “food (in)justice” and “shifting the lens of historical erasure.”
