WHAT WE’VE BEEN LISTENING TO
On Being by Krista Tippet—one of our favorite podcasts, recently featured an interview with Jericho Brown, a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, and writer. During their conversation, Tippet talked about the fragility of hope, emphasizing how hard it is to know what one can do to make a difference when there is so much we want to change in our world. Brown’s response was pure poetry…..
Hope is always accompanied by the imagination, the will to see what our physical environment seems to deem impossible. Only the creative mind can make use of hope. Only a creative people can wield it.
—Jericho Brown, poet and writer
AN INVITATION TO ATTEND A 3-DAY EVENT EXPLORING THE FUTURE OF CITIES
THE NEW CITY: NAVIGATING THE FUTURE, A HOW-TO
A VIRTUAL 3-DAY CONFERENCE
Thursday, 12/3 - Saturday, 12/5
A chance to deeply re-imagine what our urban spaces might be – for now, and for the future.
What Is The City You Dream Of?
We have been working for the last year with 2020 Visions to help produce, The New City, an incredible experience we are bringing to you this week. The prompt and provocation is what is the city you dream of? This partnership that also includes Union Theological is a 3-day exploration into art, culture, urban planning and the future with featured speakers including Andrew Yang, Sir David Adjaye, Matthew Ryder, Dror, Karenna Gore, and Serene Jones
Unlike probably most "virtual conferences" you have attended, the experience is happening on multiple platforms.
There are highly produced panels and talks which require a ticket. Many are free with a few premium tickets for sale.
We are bringing together participants in Topia, a platform that is uniquely designed for social interactivity and the imagination
For an ongoing exploration into 2020 Visions, we have a membership community at Mighty Networks.
Would love to see you. Come check out the grand finale with DJ James Andrews.

Hannah Hoffman Gallery in Los Angeles presents Alvin Baltrop—a selection of works by the groundbreaking New York photographer. Alvin Baltrop brings together an array of black-and-white images that together compose a remarkable portrait of Manhattan’s west piers from the mid 1970s through the mid 1980s. Read more.
On view until January 23, 2021. Check out the exhibition online.
For more information on Alvin Baltrop, please visit our website. Please contact Galerie Buchholz for any sales related inquiries.
“In contrast, even the most explicit of Baltrop’s photographs offer themselves as a space of exploration and discovery in which the viewer, rather than being compelled to behold the subject in purely aesthetic terms, is invited to share in what might be described as the pensive equanimity of the artist’s outlook.” Francesco Gagliardi, The Brooklyn Rail
