The World Around In Focus: Radical Repair
September 28 2023, 6.00pm
This year, The World Around joins our cultural partner Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain to create a Global Cultural Partnership convening interdisciplinary perspectives on contemporary architecture. We are hosting their first collaborative event, In Focus: Radical Repair. The conference taking place in our theater features a series of talks, films and conversations. Speakers, including Yasmeen Lari, Jeanne Gang and Joseph Grima convene for a discussion centered on the theme of radical repair.
Founded in New York in 2020, The World Around is an itinerant institution and platform for progressive global contemporary architecture. Through international events, cultural partnerships, and educational initiatives, it champions the role of design in addressing the many complex challenges of our time. Through its Young Climate Prize initiative, a biannual award and mentorship program, The World Around amplifies and accelerates the impact of global climate-change focused projects by pairing young climate leaders with mentors from the global design community.
Tickets for the event are free and include access to Siamo Foresta on September 28, from 11 am-6 pm on the day. Seats will be assigned on a first come first serve basis. Audio devices for simultaneous translation from English to Italian will be available for on-site guests by request.
The event is curated by Founder and Executive Director of The World Around Beatrice Galilee with Béatrice Grenier, Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain.
