The New School presents Living Concrete/Carrot City

posted September 26, 2010

The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at Parsons The New School for Design presents Living Concrete/Carrot City, an exhibition that explores the role of design and grassroots activism in the development of urban agriculture, and its effect on neighborhoods, health and the environment in cities such as New York.

“Living Concrete/Carrot City is at once a public forum, a teaching tool, and a design showcase,” said Radhika Subramaniam, director of the SJDC and co-curator of the exhibition. “In inviting farmers, designers, artists, media advocates, researchers, and students to think together, we aim to cultivate a conversation on urban farming that functions as what artist Joseph Beuys called ‘social sculpture’, a mixture of creative action and social transformation.”

October 1—December 15, 2010
