2022 Making Space at the Armory

As the live arts return amidst an ongoing pandemic, public programs at the Armory will offer a series of intimate talks, salons, symposia, performances, and other activations. As social gathering remains both vital and challenging, we explore how art can address the fault-lines in our racial and social order that 2020 laid bare. How can artists speak to this moment, holding space for discovery, deliberation, and experimenting, while claiming the environment we all need?

Artists, activists, and designers engage the meeting of land with water. Facing climate change and rising sea levels, this event links New York with communities across the nation and globe that sit at water’s edge. Centering the work of Indigenous water protectors who challenge extractive futures, as well as a generation of youth leaders who are rebelling against climate nihilism, Art at Water’s Edge is an intergenerational forum for the imagination in action.
