Advancing its mission to expand the role of the artist in public life, Creative Time will host the fifth annual Creative Time Summit on October 25 and 26, at NYU’s Skirball Center in NYC. Titled Art, Place, and Dislocation in the 21st Century City, the 2013 Summit will bring together a diverse group of artists, architects, planners, politicians, activists, and theorists from across the globe to examine the positive and negative consequences of the widespread belief that the arts are a necessary ingredient in the making and re-making of cities. More than thirty presenters will describe their work on this topic and look at the ways in which artists might address such issues as gentrification, racialized urbanism, environmental catastrophe, and bottom-up urban planning.
