CHECK OUT THE CREATIVE TIME SUMMIT in NY Streaming on Friday and Saturday October 25th and 26th

About the 2013 Summit

The 2013 Creative Time Summit sets its sights on the fact that culture, for good or bad, is an active ingredient in the construction and shaping of the contemporary city. Tapping into widespread debate on this issue, this year’s Summit provides a global platform for consideration of the trials, tribulations, artistic practices, campaigns, theories, and practicalities that accompany this phenomenon. As the active role of culture in the city gains traction not only with artists but also with architects, city planners, philanthropists, and developers—from eye-popping monumental sculpture, to arts districts, to battles over eviction and squatting—this year’s Summit provides a timely opportunity to debate and consider a variety of artistic approaches to this contemporary condition.


Feel free to dip into the Keynote address on Saturday by Lucy Lippard who has spoken and written about the idea of "Place" in contemporary art here at Montserrat.
