Staten Island Arts and Entertainment Events Add An Event

Exhibition: Future Culture - Connecting People and Place

The exhibition surveys six interdisciplinary art projects, including renderings and concepts, which were proposed as part of the recent Future Culture call for pilot projects to activate public space on Staten Island’s North Shore. In July 2017, Staten Island Arts and Design Trust announced that it would pilot two of the six finalist proposals from this call: Sonic Gates, a group of interactive sound sculptures; and Court Yard Fridays, a series of weekend concerts which will launch in the Summer of 2018.

The Future Culture exhibit provides an insider’s look at the creative processes for the six finalist proposals. Listen to interviews with finalists and immerse yourself in some of the renderings and concepts developed by Diane Matyas and Kristi Pfister; Kaja Kühl, Zhen Quan, Dissa Raras, and Paul Wang; Kelly Vilar and Ray Zwaryc; Tattfoo Tan; Kevin Washington, Lynn Washington, and Homer Jackson; and Volker Goetze with Alassane Drabo, DB Lampman, Lina Montoya, Jeremy Munson, Sam Samore, Arthur Simms, and Scott Van Campen.

Also on view will be information about current cultural initiatives that Staten Islanders have been undertaking in the St. George, Tompkinsville, and Stapleton communities and beyond. Visitors are asked to post their projects and events on a map and to add a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #connectingcultureSI. The aggregated online pictures will be incorporated into the exhibition in an ongoing basis. The show fosters connections between community initiatives to identify further opportunities for culture in the public realm on the North Shore.
