If you’re in New York (or looking for an opportunity to travel), we invite you to attend DOUBLE, a Manifesto Series panel discussion marking the arrival of Serkan Ozkaya’s David (inspired by Michelangelo) in New York. Presented by the Storefront for Art and Architecture and 21c Museum, the event is March 6, 2012 from 6:30 – 9pm at 97 Kenmare Street, NYC.
The event will include a live staging of manifestos, on the topic of “Double” by a group of distinguished panelists consisting of artists, architects, critics, historians and theorists, discussing the effects, desires and implications in the act of doubling, replicating or copying. Panelists include Alanna Heiss, director of Art International Radio and founder of PS1 and Clocktower Gallery; Princeton University art and architectural theorist Spyros Papapetros; Hrag Vartanian, founder of art blog Hyperallergic; Chris Eamon, independent writer and curator, and others.
21c Museum acquired David (inspired by Michelangelo)in 2010, and the following year commissioned the 30-foot-tall work’s journey from Istanbul to 21c Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.
