The haudenschildGarage supported the conference THE SITUATIONAL DRIVE: COMPLEXITIES OF PUBLIC SPHERE ENGAGEMENT (May 12 & 13, 2007, New York). inSite and Creative Time, New York presented this two-day multidisciplinary sequence of panel discussions, conversations, and art projects rethinking the challenges of artistic, curatorial, architectural and theoretical engagement in urban and other public spheres. The conference revolved around the questions "What is at stake today in terms of public domain experiences? How do we know the impact of cultural projects upon the imaginations of citizens? Do we believe in the possibility of transforming publics? What is the nature of our situational drive?"
