Talking About Living Inside the Grid Symposium

May 3 2003

The New Museum of Contemporary Art and the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, The Cooper Union, will co-sponsored this all-day symposium titled Talking About Living Inside the Grid. Inspired by the group exhibition, “Living Inside the Grid,” on view at the New Museum from February 28–June 15, 2003, the symposium featured discussions on three themes: the history of the grid in contemporary art and culture; the relationship of the body to the grid; and current theories on how to “get around” the grid.

Dan Cameron (Senior Curator, New Museum, and curator of “Living Inside the Grid”), Benjamin Weil (Curatorial Chair, Eyebeam Atelier, and Curator of Media Arts, SFMOMA), and Manuel DeLanda (Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture, Columbia University), moderated discussions with guest speakers, including Ollivier Dyens, artist, essayist, and poet; Dr. Susan Kozel, performer, choreographer and writer; Laura Kurgan, architect/artist, and Assistant Professor, School of Architecture, Princeton University; and Peter Halley, artist and publisher of Index Magazine.

Talking About Living Inside the Grid was organized by Anne Barlow, Curator of Education and Media Programs at the New Museum, with the assistance of Defne Ayas and Jessica Sucher.
