Discussion with Michelle Levy: how to connect and define artist communities

New York based curator and artist Michelle Levy will present the EFA Project Space, a program of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, a multi-arts non-profit organization in the heart of New York City. The program presents a dialogue about diverse creative practices through exhibitions, residencies, discussions, performances, and social cultivation events in collaboration with organizations, curators, artists and collectives. In her talk, Michelle Levy will share some of the projects and developments of this young program, and discuss the climate for non-commercial art programs in New York and Prague, and what the two situations could gain from each other.
