A project of Programs for Research and Outreach, organized by Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri
As part of the current exhibition "Museum as Hub: In and Out of Context: Redux," artists present an evolving series of works, publications, events, and discussions. Ayreen Anastas, Rene Gabri, and Programs for Research and Outreach (PRO) present Project for a Revolution in New York, or How to arrest a Hurricane, which explores art's potential place in economic, national, and urban struggles. PRO seeks to activate a pool of artists, agitators, thinkers, and former or aspiring revolutionaries in order to develop a series of works and interventions within the museum and in the city.
