Raising Chickens

Environmental “artshop” and teaching laboratory this fall at Parsons the New School for Design

This post comes to you from Cultura21

From the 27th of September, continuing over a four-month period, artists, designers, architects, dancers, chefs and scientists will be offering a wide array of interactive exchanges, ranging from workshops to of-site explorations at theSheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) atParsons The New School for Design (NYC, USA).

The focus of this laboratory lies in public participation dynamically transforming and shaping the experience of both visitors and artists. Radhika Subramaniam, Director and Chief Curator of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center and the curator of the lab supports this approach of letting the public engage more and subsequently think more:

“We see the galleries as spaces with which to think, rather than as venues for display.”

The opening reception illustrates the nature of the gallery, as the artist Tattfoo Tan is assisted by a member of the Staten Island Collective 5 P.M. (Poop Machine) ,  a chicken, in  the workshop on raising urban chickens!
