“Newburgh Slow School”
Sunday, December 10, 2017
12:00pm – 6:00pm
Presented by Eco Practicum
Part of the “Land and Time” exhibition organized by Momenta Art at Atlas Studios
11 Spring St, Newburgh, NY, 12550
How does a city change? What are the relationships between the geologies and geographies of Newburgh?
Join Eco Practicum, an artist-run school for ecological justice, for a day-long conversation with some of Newburgh’s artists, real estate developers, historians, activists, and citizens as we meander through, around, and within questions that shape the landscapes and timescapes of this Hudson River hub.
Newburgh Slow School takes place over five hours, and is a conversational practice of bringing together many different voices over a prolonged period to open up fresh areas of inquiry. Every hour, we introduce new invited guests who will act as thematic anchors. These guests prompt a discussion about themes on which they have expertise and experience. People are welcome to leave or join the discussion freely, and stay for as long as they wish. An audio recording from this event will serve as both a record of and an intervention in the ongoing development of place and culture in Newburgh.
This event is free and open to the public.
Our guests include:
12:30pm-1:30pm: Johanna F. Yaun, Orange County Historian
Vincent Cianni, Newburgh Community Photo Project
Geremy Ourstacher, Music Producer
Phoenix Gayle, Newburgh Community Photo Project
2:30pm-3:30pm: Rae Leiner, United Way
3:30-4:30pm: Philippe Pierre, Business Owner
“Newburgh Slow School” is part of the Land and Time exhibition organized by Momenta Art at Atlas Studios. The artists in the exhibition confront monumental transformations through video, sculpture, performance, and painting, embracing time as a palpable element in their work. They mine forgotten histories or expose imagined landscapes, reminding us that every “landscape is not a record but a recording,” polyvalent and multivocal.
