Berlind Symposium: Panel Discussion
October 21, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Discussion moderated by Sara Driver ’77 with visiting artists and scholars Alexis Adler, Lee Quiñones, Mary-Ann Monforton, and Luc Sante. The 27th Berlind Symposium is held in conjunction with the 107th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art, “Zeitgeist: The Art Scene of Teenage Basquiat,” a group exhibition focusing on the artists and scene around Jean-Michel Basquiat’s teen-aged, pre-fame years. The period covered in the exhibition tells the story of Jean-Michel’s early work, peers, and creative community in gritty, pre-AIDS, downtown New York—before the rise of the 80s art and real estate juggernaut.
