Mildred’s Lane hosts curator’s talk at Narrowsburg Mews
June 19, 2012 —
NARROWSBURG, NY — Mildred’s Lane, a storefront, office, studio, program extension, and additional site for exchange on Narrowsburg’s Main Street behind Coffee Creations, will run “The Mildred Complex(ity)” this summer, Friday afternoon-into-evening workshops, talks and musical events, free of charge, in downtown Narrowsburg.
On Friday, June 22, from 2 to 5:30 p.m., Stephanie P. Smith, Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, and curator of the recent exhibition "Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art" discusses the liminal space between the museum and the not-museum and projects that call for inventive responses by the institution. Particular attention will be paid to projects that have the potential to activate the museum's civic potential in new ways by bringing town into museum, or extending museum into town.
Rebecca Uchill and Gavin Kroeber of Experience Economies will respond, beginning a conversation about the specificity of place (and the liminal zone between town/country, for example) as it pertains to expectations of how time is used.
From 8 to 10 p.m., come work with Fritz Haeg on braided and crocheted rugs of discarded clothes and other textile scraps. Visit www.fritzhaeg.com/domestic-integrities/main.html.
