IdeasCity, the New Museum's civic platform that explores the future of cities with art and culture as a driving force, will culminate a two-year cycle of global residencies in Detroit, Athens, and Arles with its biannual program IdeasCity New York. This free and public event, themed around "100 Actions for the Future City," will be a daylong investigation of strategies, ideas, and propositions featuring artist talks, initiatives by local organizations, performances, workshops, and a panel of notable mayors from around the country. Featured speakers will include Tania Bruguera, David Byrne, Mel Chin, Maurice Cox, Teddy Cruz, Justin Garrett Moore, Fonna Forman, Kemi Ilesanmi, Ingrid Lafleur, Eric Liu, Mil M2, Rick Lowe, Rosanne Haggerty, dream hampton, Leslie Koch, Trevor Paglen, Superflex, Kasim Reed, Jonathan Rose, Kamau Ware, and Fellows from past IdeasCity residencies, among others.

IdeasCity New York will present programs with its Executive Committee members-Architecture League, Bowery Poetry Club, Cooper Union, the Drawing Center, and Storefront for Art and Architecture-and local community organizations in Lower Manhattan, as well as the New Museum's Education Department, NEW INC, and Museum affiliate Rhizome.
