Opening Reception:

May 04 2011

In their first solo NY show as part of the Guggenheim’s Intervals project, Futurefarmers will re-imagine a cobbler’s atelier that existed outside the ancient Agora where Socrates exchanged with a shoemaker named Simon. Futurefarmers opens their ten-day thinkery with “Soul/Sole Sermons,” delivered by contemporary writers in the shoemaker’s atelier. Futurefarmers will also venture outside the museum for more intimate public dialogues with contemporary thinkers throughout the city. The group will collect sidewalk dirt, the main ingredient for a Futurefarmers-made ink. Using this ink, passersby will print transcripts of the Soul/Sole Sermons and the public dialogues by foot in a series of participatory urban actions called the Pedestrian Press.
