A collaborative work by artists Michi Jigarjian and Libby Pratt
Re-Current lies somewhere between performance, installation, symposium and recreational event. On October 5, 2013, Jigarjian and Pratt hosted the main event aboard the Shearwater Schooner. During the four hour sail around the New York Harbor, a group of writers, artists, curators and urban planners engaged with the ever-changing sociopolitical and physical landscape of Lower Manhattan and Governors Island.
Following the chartered navigational course of the Shearwater, the events’ conversations and performances were guided by the shoreline’s landscape.
New Draft’s multi-tiered event focused on the fluidity of the ever-changing landscape of New York City’s waterfronts and how it manifests in the contemporary art world.
