Like many of Suzanne Lacy’s works, tomorrow’s performance—Creative Time’s largest undertaking to date—aims to get widespread attention on the issues of a local marginalized community. “Between the Door and the Street” enlists around 350 activists, mostly female, to stage small conversations on city stoops about issues of class and labor inequality.

On Friday, Creative Time staked out a small plot of Rockaway Beach, attracting a small crowd and a dense flock of boom mics to its second annual Sandcastle Competition. There was so much press, in fact, that “Who are you writing for?” was a pretty reasonable introduction. From there, conversations migrated towards photo strategies and documentation.

That’s because it’s well worth documenting the shit out of this event; good sandcastles make for a full-day artist pageant and a manifesto for teamwork.

Sandcastles. Ever since Creative Time rang in its first annual artist sandcastle competition last year, we haven’t been able to get enough of them. But can this year’s competition–coming up on August 9th–possibly top last year? We dunno, but for inspiration, we look to art.

Who knew? Grand Central has a spare room. I’d never noticed the palatial wings of Vanderbilt Hall until they were swarmed yesterday with hundreds of people, all waiting for two small herds of Nick Cave horse costumes to move.

Don’t worry about Tilda. As MoMA and the Armory become even greater parodies of themselves, and after a long series of depressing gallery trips, things outside the mega-art world are looking up.

TED was the favored talk style of the Friday afternoon portion of the Creative Time Summit. In 8 minutes or less, speakers delivered inspirational, arms-length examples ending with a suggestion or a rhetorical question. But past that and the fact that too much time was spent on Nato’s pants, a few speakers offered concrete ideas.
