New York Academics, migration experts, policy makers, UN agency representatives and governments gathered in New York to share good practices of integration, showcase projects aimed at promoting tolerance and understanding in multicultural cities and examined the next steps. As a follow-up to subsequent discussions held in New York in 2009, in Rio de Janeiro in 2010, and in Rome in 2011, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) joined forces with the Italian Permanent Mission to the UN to organize a working lunch on “The Inter-ethnic City” on Monday, September 26th 2011. The integration of migrants, specifically in cities, is critical for the improvement of cooperative relations among peoples across cultures and religions. This working lunch examined good practices and processes for better integration at the level of cities as experienced by local administrators, policymakers and other stakeholders. Among other good practices, the UNAOC presented its video project which aims at showing examples of good integration of migrants in Italian cities and shifting the focus of the immigration debate towards the human side of the story. UNESCO and UN-Habitat presented the project ‘Migrants’ Inclusion in Cities: Innovative urban policies and practices’, a toolkit for local decision-makers providing guidelines and examples of good practices to improve the inclusion of international migrants in the city. According to Michelle Klein-Solomon, the Permanent Observer for the International Organization for Migration, “there is no one model of integration, there is no one model of migration, we have to acknowledge these differences while giving a feeling of citizenship to build more inclusive societies”. But overall, as stated by Vincenzo Scotti, Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs of Italy, it is a question of tolerance and respect.

Horse. allows the viewer to look afresh at a range of other text-based practices that originated in the 60s and 70s. Robert Smithson and Carl Andre are best known for their contributions to minimalist sculpture, and Vito Acconci for his performance work, but here they are represented by poetic and expressive works on paper. The exhibition also includes poems illuminated by Philip Guston and Alasdair Gray, typewriter works by outsider artist Christopher Knowles and a set of etchings by David Hockney inspired by Greek poet CP Cavafy.  Poor. Old. Tired. Horse. concludes with the work of a number of younger artists. Sue Tompkins, Janice Kerbel and Anna Barham are all represented by text-based pieces, including a film by Barham in which letters are assembled and disassembled by hand.
