Conversation: Personae in the Twenty-first Century

Saturday, June 30, 2018

2–4 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Artist David Levine moderates a conversation on the use of personae in our domestic, political, and online lives, with New Yorker staff writer and novelist Elif Batuman; writer and journalist Adrian Chen; art historian Carrie Lambert-Beatty; and journalist, critic, and author Virginia Heffernan. They explore the bots, trolls, rent-a-families, fake crowds, and other parafictional characters blurring distinctions between fact and fiction, fake and real in the twenty-first century.

Free with Museum general admission, but please RSVP (purchase tickets for David Bowie is separately).
