Translating Spaces: Translating Law

A conversation with LaToya Ruby Frazier, Sina Najafi, Huong Ngo, and Sean Raspet
Moderated by Kristen Chappa and Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento

SculptureCenter and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts are proud to present the conversation Translating Spaces: Translating Law. Panelists will discuss projects that are situated in between the physical and immaterial, the public and private, and the artistic and legal. Some projects enact discursive, conceptual gestures through enforceable agreements, while others raise legal issues in specific geographic spaces and virtual communities. Often co-opting and repurposing multiple spaces as a strategy, these artists destabilize notions of use, appropriation, and function in relation to property, particularly when considering the problematic of increasingly hybrid, interconnected sites, spaces, and loci.

Saturday, March 17th, 4:00pm-5:30pm

44-19 Purves Street
Long Island City, NY 11101

Free Admission
