“BETWEEN NEIGHBORHOODS” film and panel, this Thursday (with Prof. Amy Chazkel)

Join us in the Martin E. Segal Theatre Thursday, May 26th at 4:00pm for Between Neighborhoods  – a public viewing followed by a public forum discussion.

This panel brings together scholars, critics, and activists to discuss these issues as explored in the audiovisual installation Between Neighborhoods by audiovisual historian-filmmaker Seth Fein (Seven Local Film). The multimedia work examines the forces that constructed the Unisphere, Robert Moses’s iconic monument to 1960s globalization from above in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, and the forces of globalization from below that redefine it in Queens today. Freddy Castiblanco (Terraza 7), Amy Chazkel (CUNY), Peter L’Official (Bard), Mary Louise Pratt (NYU), and Laura Wexler (Yale) join the artist for a public conversation.
