An annual conference bringing together cultural producers to discuss how their work engages pressing issues affecting our world.
The Creative Time Summit includes cultural producers whose international projects consist of a vast array of practices and methodologies that engage with the canvas of everyday life. Participants range from art world luminaries to those purposefully obscure, providing a glimpse into an evolving community concerned with the political implications of socially engaged art. This third iteration of the Summit features presenters with projects in the Living as Form archive.
