Just sit quiet and listen to the speaker? Not a chance! TEDxGramercy brings together some of the most innovative New Yorkers. We engage the discourse, debate ideas deeply, ponder profound questions, and never shy away from the very real complexities of our evolving world.
For the past fifteen years, artist and architect Abraham Burickson has been working with artists of all kinds to create day-long, week-long, even month-long performances for one person audiences. To create the experiences, which are transformative and overtake all aspects of the audience's life, Burickson and his collaborators begin with a fundamental provocation: all art and design–from architecture to graphics, playwriting to novel writing, painting to performance art–is experience design. What results is a radically different approach to creativity that forces audiences and artists into a deep, relational, and ultimately transformative embrace.Get Tickets
