The Scale of Intervention

the New Museum

Fri Sep, 5 2008, 7:30PM

Co-organized by Conflux, an annual festival dedicated to psychogeography, and moderated by the founders of the celebrated street art website Wooster Collective, this panel will look at possibilities for artistic disruption within urban environments. Taking its name from a film by the London-based Cutup Collective, which plays with the viewer's perception of a street scene, the panel will feature artists whose work ranges across a variety of mediums and materials. From reformulation of billboard advertisements into powerful, politically-oriented collages to the subversive reformulation of street signs, such as pedestrian crossings and bike lanes, the featured artists will demonstrate how they dislodge the customary navigation and perception of urban space.
