Preservation Research Office is excited to be among the participants that the Pulitzer Art Foundation selected for the Marfa Dialogues program this year. The Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Ballroom Marfa and the Public Concern Foundation are bringing Marfa Dialogues to the St. Louis area to examine the ways in which art can serve as a catalyst for unexpected collaboration.
This experiment is aligned with the Pulitzer’s current exhibition, Art of Its Own Making, which features artists who examine materials, environment, and how generative elements impact the works of art they create. Marfa Dialogues is supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
For the Marfa Dialogues, PRO’s Michael R. Allen and Lydia Slocum devised a program entitled 30 Days of Demolition that connects data and material collected from one month of wrecking vacant houses in St. Louis. Read more about 30 Days of Demolition here.
The Marfa Dialogues take place July 30 through August 4 at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation.
