Artist Talk: Robert Longo and Hal Foster

Thursday, November 16, 2017

7–8:30 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Join Robert Longo and scholar Hal Foster as they discuss art and activism in times of emergency. In conjunction with the special exhibition Proof: Francisco Goya, Sergei Eisenstein, Robert Longo, the two explore how art historical discourses on the concept of the real have found a renewed urgency today, in a moment embroiled in “fake news,” iconoclasm, and the desire for representational justice.
