Arguably the world's most valuable, busiest and most crowded pieces of real estate, Midtown Manhattan is what most visitors think of when they think of New York City. Home to some of the city's most iconic architecture, from Gothic to Post-Modern and from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco (lots of Art Deco). it's not difficult to understand why. But just behind the massive facades, lie facinating histories just waiting to be unveiled.

This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

Colloquium |
With the flow of finance, people, and influence across national borders undermining the traditional sovereignty of the nation-state, this event explores alternative ways that we might think about the definition and role of how a space is delimited and ruled. The conversation considers new technologies including the structure of the stack as described by theorist Benjamin Bratton. In several texts Bratton describes the relationship between different types of automated calculation such as mobile apps, smart cities, and cloud platforms amongst others. In recent years Bratton, as well as other academics and artists, have developed substantial discourse around this term, considering how these seemingly invisible structures that inform and underpin our everyday lives operate in ways that are akin to older, more familiar models of the market and the state and also how they differ.This panel brings those conversations together with the history and contemporary moment of the No DAPL protests, one of the largest gatherings of indigenous nations in one place that has gained significant momentum and visibility in the news to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline.ParticipantsNobu Aozaki, artistBenjamin Bratton, Professor, Speculative Design; Director, Center for Design and Geopolitics, University of California, San DiegoTyler Coburn, artist and writerJaskiran Dhillon, Assistant Professor of Global Studies and AnthropologyAdelita Husni-Bey, artistDaniel Sauter, Associate Professor of Data Visualization

Opening Reception |
From the artist: “As a realist artist working from an abstract reference point, I search for the painting’s essence, to find its inherent visual power. My need to communicate through line, form, texture, and color is overwhelming and literally beyond words. A successful work of art has its own energy that the viewer can feel. I know how I feel when I look at art that moves and inspires, and gives me hope. To embrace the creative spirit is one of the joys of being human.”

Discussion |
Inspired by one of David Markson's late works of fiction, this panel invites authors of non-traditional fictions to discuss their work, writing processes, inspirations, and motivations. Such hybrid forms are books that mix fiction and non-fiction, books that employ intertextuality, that use research and the documentary impulse in some way, or involve the intermixing both lyrical and more prose-like approaches. With Laurie Sheck, David Shields, Shelley Jackson and Wayne Koestenbaum. Moderated by Lucy Ives.
