The Plain of Heaven

(a clarification – i was so busy i didn’t read this very closely when i got Creative Time newsletter. Below is from their site about the current exhibition:

The Plain of Heaven is an international exhibition inspired by the impending redevelopment of the High Line, the disused elevated rail structure that runs up the west side of Manhattan.“The Plain of Heaven” takes off from this elegiac and exciting moment of transformation to consider how we imagine, and long for, inaccessible spaces; the relationships between transfiguration, destruction and rebirth; the opposition between nature and the urban environment; and more generally, the way in which we re-mystify the world we already know.

As part of that, they’ve been having a lecture series on the following schedule:

Artist conversations Saturdays at 2 P.M.

OCT 15 Helen Mirra, Shannon Ebner, and Saskia Olde Wolbers
OCT 22 Adam Putnam

NOV 19 Paul Ramírez Jonas

SUNDAY, NOV 20, 5:40 – 6 P.M. Trisha Donnelly’s sound installation will be played once only, during the final 20 minutes of the exhibition.
