ABOUT THE PROGRAM

In conjunction with the exhibition Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie, attend an interdisciplinary presentation that examines the ways collective engagement can challenge established norms of how
 we view and interact with public space. 

After a weekend of research on the Skirball campus, a team of local artists, designers, and architects will present their reflections and responses to Moshe Safdie’s work and how it relates to current personal and urban issues. Participants include contemporary artist Analia Saban, Cro Studio’s Marcel Sanchez-Prieto and Adriana Cuellar, and Peter Zellner, Principal and Studio Design Lead, AECOM and professor at SCI-Arc.

“Global City” is presented by Big City Forum. The presentation will be facilitated by artist, curator, and founder of Big City Forum, Leonardo Bravo.
