For the third installment of Art Voices, our collaborative content project with Red Bull Arts, we’re exploring the theme of New Spaces. Safe spaces and welcoming communities are often a catalyst for progressive ideas and creative output. Spaces, which can be as simple as a friends apartment and as complicated as a public square, endow individuals with the ability to form communities, create bonds, and nourish thought. They are a vital fiber in a cities landscape.
Space is constantly contested, analyzed, and fought over especially as cities succumb to 21st century gentrification. We asked a diverse, creative field how they ponder space. How does on support and promote new communities? How do we deal with ownership and privatization in an increasingly corporate world?
Read on to hear from Bridget Finn and Terese Reyes, Saskia and Christian, Cynthia Daignault, Sanford Biggers, Jonathan Travis, and Khalid Livingston.
