CNY “Talk About”: EXPO 1 at PS 1 + Technology Debate!

You are invited to a CNY “Talk About” event:

When: Sunday, July 28, 1 PM
Where: MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY
(We will meet on the stairs at the building entrance)

Hello everyone! This “Talk About” will be a terrific two-for-one event. We will visit MoMA’s PS 1 in Queens and tour the new exhibit “EXPO 1: New York.” This exhibit features art that addresses issues surrounding climate-change and the environment.

Then, we will attend a PS 1 debate between David Auerbach (author/engineer), Evgeny Morozov (author of “The Net Delusion”) and Ben Wizner (Director of ACLU’s Speech, Privacy and Technology Project). They will debate technology’s false utopias and progressive possibilities….

Finally, we will sit down for drinks and snacks at the PS 1 café and debate the meaning of what we have experienced.

Note: Entry to the PS 1 museum is “suggested donation” and free to MoMA members. We may have to pay $10 to attend the debate. I will update this shortly.
