2023 Making Space at the Armory

Held in our historic period rooms and spaces, this insightful series of cutting-edge conversations, performances, and activations provide a unique forum for bridging art and culture. These happenings—curated by professor and scholar Tavia Nyong’o—make space for new points of view and unique perspectives from a diverse array of artists, scholars, cultural leaders, and social trailblazers.

Interrogating the forms of artistic expression that challenge and inspire audiences to “achieve our country,” in the words of James Baldwin, these gatherings foster the art of conversation and dialogue about Armory productions and urgent questions of our day.
