Banquet des refusés

A foraged urban meal and long table

September 27, 2018
Darling Foundry, Montreal

Le banquet des refusés is a response to questions about public space, the spatial politics of making things public, the role of artists in mobilizing publics, and the right to the city. Concepts of publics and publicness may not always be a product of the designed built environment. For Rosalyn Deutsche, social relationships are critical to the meanings given to the public sphere: “what does it mean for space to be public – the space of the city, a building, exhibition, institution, or work of art?” [1] A site responsive social intervention, Le banquet des refusés invites guests to consider, through dialogue and other gestural forms, under what urban conditions are spaces being imagined as public realms.
