Buy About Elastic City: Pills

Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit. Artists are commissioned by Elastic City to create their own participatory walks for the public, often using sensory-based techniques, reinvented folk rituals and other exercises to investigate and intervene with the daily life of the city, its variously defined communities, and the politics of individual and group identity.

Elastic City’s 2015 programming consists of a free six-week New York City-based festival from July 7 to August 18. The festival features: participatory walks by artists; talks that have set out to undo the hierarchy of conventional artist talks in order to better situate the audience inside of an artist’s work, and “ways,” artist-led workshops.
