A panel on Sex and the City


January 26, 2005
by Canadian Architect

Acting as agent provocateur, this event begs discussion about domesticity, safety, charged and neutral spaces, gender-based assumptions about the private/public divide, “otherness,” the role of technology and the ethics of daily life in city spaces. It also questions how to look at the city, its messy in-between spaces, and the role of architecture, with fresh eyes. A panel of distinguished artists, architects, architectural historians, and curators whose work investigates cities, architecture and places, will examine aspects of this topic at close range. Participants and topics include:

*Shelley Hornstein: Introductory Thoughts
*Annmarie Adams: Designing Women
*George Baird: Publicness and Limits to Plurality
*Janet Jones: Painting the Spaces of Feminism: Drifting with the Flaneuse
*Philip Monk: Responds

This event takes place from 2:30pm 4:30pm on February 1 in Room 1004 of the Technology Enhanced Learning Building in the Department of Visual Arts, Faculty of Fine Arts, York University. Admission is free. For more information, please visit www.yorku.ca
