Participants include Dorothea von Hantelmann (Freie Universität, Berlin), Alexander Potts (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), and Nancy Spector. Reception follows. $10, $7 members, free for students with RSVP.
The Last Word
Sat, Jan 22, 6 pm–1 am
Maurizio Cattelan is retiring from art-making with his current retrospective. To mark the end of the exhibition (and the beginning of retirement), twenty or so prominent artists, philosophers, writers, comedians, filmmakers, actors, musicians, and more will come together to contemplate the end. More than just some winter morbidity, this event tackles that most difficult moment: to decide when to stop one thing and begin another or to end it altogether. Less strenuous than a long distance event and much more than a quick sprint, this event will be a meditative seven hour jog around life's central park of pleasures, desires, and regrets. Co-organized by Simon Critchley (Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy, The New School of Social Research), and Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and curator of Maurizio Cattelan: All. Admission: pay what you wish.
