How can art and cultural activities enrich and activate the open spaces of Staten Island? We are pleased to announce the extension of Future Culture: Connecting People and Place on Staten Island’s North Shore. This exhibit exemplifies the idea of ‘place-based,’ and we encourage all native and new Staten Islanders to explore the exhibit, which engages many themes that are close to home as the borough undergoes massive change. The Future Culture project is fostering connections between community initiatives to identify opportunities for our public realm and to be a stronghold against unwanted changes.
 
Staten Island Arts and the Design Trust issued a call to artists for proposals for pilot projects to activate public space on Staten Island’s North Shore. The work in this exhibition features the finalists, and the two selected projects, Sonic Gates, a group of interactive sound sculptures; and Court Yard Fridays, a series of weekend concerts which will launch in the Summer of 2018. 
 
The Future Culture exhibit provides an insider’s look at the creative processes for the six finalist proposals. Listen to interviews with finalists and immerse yourself in some of the renderings and concepts developed by Diane Matyas and Kristi Pfister; Kaja Kühl, Zhen Quan, Dissa Raras, and Paul Wang; Kelly Vilar and Ray Zwaryc; Tattfoo Tan; Kevin Washington, Lynn Washington, and Homer Jackson; and Volker Goetze with Alassane Drabo, DB Lampman, Lina Montoya, Jeremy Munson, Sam Samore, Arthur Simms, and Scott Van Campen.
 
Add your mark to the map… we’re documenting it all!
 
A central feature of the exhibition is a wall-size map documenting initiatives, projects, and events that Staten Islanders have been undertaking in the St. George, Tompkinsville, and Stapleton communities and beyond. Join us and add your project! Better yet, include a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #connectingcultureSI. Can’t make it to the physical exhbiit? Participate virtually.

The Future Culture exhibition is supported, in part, by Councilwoman Debi Rose, Stop & Stor, and our artist, board, individual and business members.
