Xtrotecture is a project which examines the simultaneous local and global presence of Lower Manhattan in an age of late-capitalism, technological acceleration, and the Anthropocene. How do we envisage the city now, and what potential strategies are available for confronting these contemporary aporias? In this phase of the project, artist and writer Joshua Johnson will interview artists, theorists and experts who have articulated new conceptualizations of architecture, technology, and planning for the 21st century. These interviews will be conducted in Artists Alliance’s Cuchifritos Gallery, in the midst of an evolving installation. The interviews will be publicly broadcast and documented on a companion website: http://xtrotecture.com
Presented as part of the Workspace 2016 series, featuring the work of LES Studio Program artists-in-residence.
