Ruth Sergel: Experiential Artist’s Talk + Reading
Thu, April 6, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Join us for an experiential artist’s talk and reading with artist and agitator Ruth Sergel!
Artist and agitator Ruth Sergel creates bold and compassionate works that explode traditional media. Bridging art and technology, memory and wonder Ruth's socially-engaged projects include Chalk, an annual public intervention and memorial, the creation of the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition, and Voices of 9.11. Her work has been exhibited at MoMA, the Corcoran and the New-York Historical Society. Ruth was honored to be part of the Community Leaders Briefing Series at the Obama White House.
Ruth's new book, See You In the Streets: Art, Action + Remembering the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, is an exuberant account probing questions of agency, art and inciting social transformation. In collaboration with New School Urban Studies professor Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani as respondent, this evening will be a participatory event for all.
