PART OF PARSONS FESTIVAL 2012:
Presented by the BS Urban Design program and Art in Odd
Places (AiOP), Sidewalk is a three-day street festival taking place on 14th
Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. For the festival program, independent
curator Edwin Ramoran and a panel of artists and faculty members have selected
urban interventions, performances, audio and digital pieces, and new inventive
practices that consider the theme "MODEL." Interpretations of the
theme may include--but are not limited to--the following expressions: fashion,
prototype, pose, imitate, plan, model citizen, role models, and systems.
Featured artists and designers are New School students, faculty, and alumni.
Following the mission statement of AiOP, Sidewalk aims to act as a reminder
that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions
and the unfettered exchange of ideas. See the event schedule at newschoolsidewalk.blogspot.com.
