In Conversation: Memory

Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 7 p.m.
Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion, 1st Floor

How much of our memory is real and how much is constructed? Neuroscientist Karim Nader, visual artist Shimon Attie, and choreographer Julia Gleich discuss how art and science intersect in explorations of the complex and poetic concept of memory. This talk will be preceded by a 6 p.m. gallery tour exploring connections between memory and art in the Museum.

Tickets, which include Museum admission, can be purchased at www.museumtix.com ($12; $8 for students and seniors). Members receive free admission; please call (718) 501-6326 for reservations.

The Museum remains open every Thursday until 10 p.m., allowing visitors to linger later in the galleries and enjoy exciting evening programs.
