Join the New Museum and Performance Space 122 in a Long Table conversation on the role cultural institutions have in keeping our communities generative. Organized in celebration of Lower East Side History Month, this discussion will look at the Lower East Side and the East Village.

The Long Table format was developed by artist Lois Weaver and experiments with participation and public engagement by reappropriating the dinner table as a public forum for informal conversations on serious topics. The event series centers around a fifteen-foot table surrounded by twelve chairs, encouraging anyone and everyone to take turns sitting down, ask questions, spark debate, listen, and share ideas.

A reception will immediately follow the event. Please RSVP here by May 22.

Follow along on Twitter during the night of the event at #generativecity.


New Museum education and public program support is provided, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
