Amy Goodman will participate in the first event in Creative Time’s 10th anniversary summit, joined in conversation by artists Tega Brain and Morehshin Allahyari.

Creative Time’s Speaking Truth Summit, runs throughout 2019 in New York City, starting with this discussion, which “brings together practitioners working to reshape digital and media environments in a moment of historically low trust in our institutions. Gathering to discuss the current practices and concerns with regards to the manipulation and dissemination of public information, and increasing attacks to freedom of expression, speakers will address the impetus to forge connections and solidarity structures using new media technologies and conceive challenges to conventional wisdom.”

The summit includes two additional conversations in coming months and a weekend-long convening in November, along with an accompanying book.

Creative Time is a public arts organization that works with artists to contribute to the dialogues, debates and dreams of our times.

Tega Brain is an artist making dysfunctional devices, eccentric infrastructures, and experimental information systems. Her work focuses on rethinking who and what is included and excluded in the formation of art, engineering, and experimental design. Tega is an Assistant Professor of Digital Media, New York University, has been a fellow at Data & Society and a resident at Eyebeam and the Processing Foundation.

Morehshin Allahyari is an artist, activist, educator, and curator whose work addresses the political, social, and cultural contradictions we face daily. She thinks about technology as a philosophical toolset to reflect on objects, as well as a poetic means to document our current personal and collective struggles. Her 3D-printed sculptural reconstructions of ancient artifacts destroyed by ISIS, Material Speculation: ISIS, and her current project, She Who Sees The Unknown, have been exhibited internationally and received widespread attention.
