Philadelphia, PA – Four projects that challenged and engaged viewers throughout Philadelphia last fall are the topic of “Conversations at Moore: Assembling a Monumental Speech/Orchestra – Reflections on the contemporary art events that shaped Fall 2017 in Philadelphia,” Tuesday, March 27, 2018, 6:30 – 8 pm, at Moore College of Art & Design’s Graham Auditorium, 20th Street and the Parkway. It is free and open to the public and is ADA accessible.

Presenters include Paul Farber, University of Pennsylvania, on Monument Lab; Damon Reaves, Philadelphia Museum of Art, on Philadelphia Assembled; Meg Onli, Institute of Contemporary Art, on Speech/Acts; and Rob Blackson, Temple Contemporary, on Symphony for a Broken Orchestra.

This conversation will begin with an overview of each project and will continue by exploring points of connection between the work, such as the concept of “the event” as a way to mark and record social history alongside the growing influence of the event production industry on cultural production today.

The audience will be invited to engage the speakers in a dialog about their projects during a question-and-answer session. The event is presented by Moore Graduate Studies and co-sponsored by the Museum Council of Greater Philadelphia.
