drawbridge (5.3) Friday’s Salon at the Athenaeum — “Curating the City: Temporary Installations, Permanent Impressions” series, part 3 – Artist/Researcher Adj Marshall on her “Wasteland National Park” project, a museo-memorial for the interstitial space between the Providence East Side Railroad Tunnel and the Providence Drawbridge.

Interstices, the empty spaces or gaps between spaces full of structures or matter, are easily overlooked and forgotten. Wasteland National Park, a project of Wasteland Twinning an international network of artists who are developing creative research practices to explore the role of wasteland spaces in contemporary cityscapes, seeks to explore and understand this interstitial Providence space by means of creative research and collaborative interpretation with the community. Marshall will discuss cultural, economic, historical, and ecological interpretations of space, industrial ruins, “place making,” and heterotopias. Series curated by James Brayton Hall.

Free and open to the public, 5pm to 7pm, Friday, May 3, Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street
