Discussion | In Situ: Places (and Material) with a Past


During a time of transition, when the National Academy is between exhibition spaces for the first time in many decades, organizing shows has required creativity and collaboration with other organizations and venues. Questions of sustainability, ephemerality, reuse, and regeneration become more prominent, as reflected in our Governors Island exhibition, Materia/Material. This is a conversation about what it means to make work in a historic site, to create works of art with materials that carry their own histories of reuse, and how the curatorial process is shaped by these conditions, with architect Stephanie Lin; artist Jim Osman; Klaudia Ofwona Draber, Founder and President, KODA; and Tara Sansone, Executive Director, Materials for the Arts, Klaudia Ofwona Draber, Founder and President, KODA and moderated by Sara Reisman, National Academy of Design Chief Curator/Director.
