Join us for a series of
performative dialogues between experts in diverse fields in conjunction with
the exhibition As it were… so to speak: A Museum Collection in dialogue with
Barbara Bloom. Each evening concentrates on a different aspect of “dialogue,”
pairing speakers demonstrating theory and practice. Unlike in traditional
conversation the speakers do not engage with one another, instead each
addresses the subject at hand and the audience members directly.
The Dialogue between strangers and the past program
features Michael Taussig,
Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University with Anthony Coleman, a composer and pianist.
Sponsored by The Jewish Museum and the School of Media Studies.
