Join Marvin J. Taylor, Director of the Fales Library and Special Collections at New York University, for a gallery-based talk in conjunction with “The Keeper.”
Outside the Box offers a roster of gallery-based talks given by a variety of guest speakers over the course of a season. In this series, lecturers with diverse backgrounds and affinities will address the New Museum’s summer exhibition, “The Keeper,” in forty-five- to sixty-minute presentations taking place exclusively in the Museum’s galleries. As a way to emphasize the Museum’s strong commitment to new art and new ideas, Outside the Box Gallery Talks are open to the public and are intended to provide participants with multidisciplinary perspectives on New Museum exhibitions. To this end, lecturers will speak about the exhibition or themes emergent in select works from the various positions they occupy—be they academic, personal, political, or otherwise. With their distinct individual relationships to the artists and works on view, lecturers will engage in rich investigations that will illuminate and probe the Museum’s current exhibition program.
Additional Outside the Box Gallery Talks for the summer season include:
Thursday August 4, 3:30 PM: Valérie Rousseau
Thursday September 1, 3:30 PM: Jeffrey Jerome Cohen
All Outside the Box Gallery Talks are free with Museum admission, but attendance is limited. Please RSVP here for more information and to request tickets.
