REBROADCAST: Artist, curator, and visiting assistant professor at The New School, Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani, joins us to discuss her book, Contested City: Art and Public History as Mediation at New York's Seward Park Urban Renewal Area, which breaks down the complex history behind this 50 year long fight for affordable housing in Manhattan's Lower East Side. The book has also inspired a new show curated by Bendiner-Viani at the Artists Alliance’s Cuchifritos Gallery and Project Space, inside the new Essex Market at 88 Essex St. titled, Keep Me Nearby, which includes photographs by Nick Lawrence, and is on view through July 21. Bendiner-Viani will also be giving a free walking tour of the site as part of her decade-long Layered SPURA project at 2pm on July 20.
