Pedal Social Practice
Storm King’s Visitor Center, Building 315, Governors Island
At 2pm on Governors Island, artist team Rob Swainston and Alison Dell will lead an easy, waterfront bike ride saluting a diversity of communities and structures along the way. The tour will be punctuated by “Stop and Look” moments at which time participants may explore buildings and landmarks through “SeeSlow”- outdoor drawing at a leisurely, contemplative pace – and discuss how waterfront neighborhoods are being transformed by development and gentrification. Participants will discuss arts programming and community building projects at Governors Island, and will make SeeSlow drawings at di Suvero’s sculptures. Participants will also discuss public art and social practice.
Participants are also invited to join Swainston and Dell prior to the program at 10am at Socrates Sculpture Park, or along the way, and ride to Governors Island.
