Is the Digital Age Killing Public Space?
Date: Wednesday September 3, 2014, at 7 pm
Location: Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center
Admission: Free. Reservation required
The more time we spend in a virtual world, the more we crave human connection. Yet with every technological advance, public space appears to get a little less relevant. Are we destined to forego public spaces? Drawing from art history, panelists will consider whether digital technologies will replace physical public spaces, or simply change how we design and use parks, plazas, town squares, and other traditional gathering places. Complements the exhibition The Scandalous Art of James Ensor.
