Trailer trash panel

Monday, September 13, 2010

This Sunday (9/19/10), is taking part in a trash-themed panel  moderated by artist Paul Lloyd Sargent as part of a project called “15 minutes, 15 people” on the Mobile Literacy Arts Bus (MLAB).


MLAB is a renovated RV that travels the country hosting educational events. It holds about 15 people, hence the project name. Now through September 24th, the RV is parked in front of the Stephan Stoyanov Gallery (29 Orchard Street). And from 2-4pm on Sunday, Paul will host a panel on the disposal chain that will include trashies like myself and the amazing Robin Nagle, anthropologist in residence for the Department of Sanitation, New York City.

We’ve covered both Paul and Robin’s work in past posts. Most recently here and here.

Robin was also recently interviewed by The Believer so be sure to check that out.

Facebook invite to the overall MLAB event here.

I’m looking forward to filling a trailer with trash talk with these guys plus other trashies!  If you’re in NYC, stop on by. And let me know if you’re interested in a trash collecting walk beforehand. Paul is organizing one as part of a larger garbage art project.
