“Transforming Assembly” May 8–12, 2012 @ James Gallery, CUNY Graduate Center
Students of all ages from across New York City will come together to celebrate access to public education, in collaboration with Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency’s exhibition Common Assembly. Through physical and digital archiving, printmaking, collaborative mapping, film and new media, poetry, performance, and anthropological field notes, participants will open alternative spaces for assembly and pedagogy.
The James Gallery, the General Assembly of the Graduate Center, OpenCUNY, and the Center for the Humanities invite you to “Transforming Assembly,” a week-long collaborative installation curated by students of the City University of New York in collaboration with the James Gallery artists in residence, Decolonizing Architecture.
High school, undergraduate, and graduate students from across the city will celebrate access to public education. Through physical and digital archiving, printmaking, collaborative mapping, film and new media, as well as performative readings of poetry and anthropological field notes, participants will open an alternative space of assembly.
