New York architecture. Exposing digital gaps in architecture through brief discussion and a Wikipedia editing workshop. On May 17, 4pm. Storefront Gallery, 97 Kenmare St NYC.
Wwwriting Series: Digital Invisibles will focus on exposing the digital gaps in architecture. Architects, movements, ideas or projects that have been dismissed, forgotten, or discriminated against by the discipline of architecture are introduced for discussion and documentation.
Organized together with Arielle Assouline-Lichten, a series of presentations on architectural “invisibles” will precede a Wikipedia editing workshop led by a group of activists who work to give forgotten architecture a presence on Wikipedia. Participants include Arielle Assouline-Lichten, Andrea Jeanne Merrett, and Ionna Theocharopoulou, among others.
The audience is encouraged to bring their own laptops to be part of the Wikipedia Editathon. Storefront will provide free wifi.
This event is open to all with reserved seats available to Storefront members. If you are interested in reserving a seat by becoming a Storefront member, click here.
