The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

African-American marching bands have long been powerful agents of cultural and political expression, celebrating collective identities and asserting rights to public space and visibility. With Marching On, Bryony Roberts and Mabel O. Wilson, professors at Columbia University’s GSAPP, collaborate with the Marching Cobras of New York, a Harlem-based after-school drumline and dance team, to explore the legacy of marching and organized forms of performance. Commissioned by Storefront for Art and Architecture, this new project interweaves echoes of the 1917 Silent March against racial violence with references to the revered Harlem Hellfighters in order to celebrate the crucial role of the community's collective performances as acts of both cultural expression and political resistance. Start times: 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 2:00pm

New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

Conference |
Making Room for Action is a day-long program of talks, screenings, conversations, and performances with an international group of architects, scholars, and artists addressing how performance can serve as a radical tool to rethink the discipline of architecture. In keeping with an open-classroom approach, this conference is open to both speakers and audience members to join in. 2:30pm: Opening remarks 2:45pm: Lecture-performance by Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco Lluís Alexandre Casanovas Blanco’s lecture-performance focuses on Ciudad en el Espacio (City in Space), a short-lived experiment by the Taller de Arquitectura/Ricardo Bofill in Madrid in 1969, inspired by the experimental methods of American performance group The Living Theater.  3:00pm: Liz Diller and RoseLee Goldberg in conversation  This conversation will survey Diller Scofidio + Renfro's work in live performance while tracing how this critical approach to space has informed and shaped their buildings throughout their four-decade-long practice. 4:15pm: Selling Dreams by Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine (screening) Mark, the protagonist of this documentary followed by Bêka and Lemoine recounts his idiosyncratic strategies for selling tailor-made dreams to guests looking for a “true Scandinavian experience” on an infamous home sharing platform. 5:00pm: Panel discussion with Giovanna Borasi, Yve Laris Cohen, T+E+A+M While performance can challenge the conventions of the built environment, it may also offer invaluable source of first-hand information to architects. These three speakers explore the many possibilities of exchange between performance and architecture in their diverse practices. 6:00pm: Lecture-performance by Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe) How do you turn a tree into a financial asset? In Offsetted, the duo explores the legacy of “America’s greenest mayor,” Michael Bloomberg, who championed afforestation (the process of planting trees in areas devoid of any) to increase local resistance to storms and improve energy conservation, while at the same time transforming trees into carbon reserves for industrialists to offset their environmental damage.
