APTNE is pleased to announce our second collaborative event with the Neighborhood Preservation Center (NPC). Join us June 8th at the NPC to socialize with your fellow local preservationists and enjoy a presentation by architectural conservator and preservation consultant Mary Kay Judy.
Mary Kay will present "Reversible Monuments: Historic Environment as Contemporary Medium," focusing on the phenomenon of contemporary artists using historic architecture, features, infrastructure, and streetscapes as the primary artistic medium of their work, as opposed to solely places of art installation or exhibition. By their nature, "Reversible Monuments" have a strong conservation and historic preservation component. The works are meant to be temporary, reversible and designed in such a way that no materials, means and methods will leave a lasting impact and all inevitably highlight the historic resource's most enduring and significant features.
The presentation will be followed by light refreshments and networking amongst attendees.
Event info: - Open to all. Price is $10 for all
- Light refreshments will be served
- Location: Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 East 11th Street, between 2nd & 3rd Avenues (buzzer #1), NYC 10003
- Max attendees 35
