Join us for a special conversation between artist Peter Saul and Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson Artistic Director of the New Museum and co-curator of “Peter Saul: Crime and Punishment,” the first New York survey of Saul’s work. The conversation will take its cues from Saul’s exhibition, which brings together approximately sixty paintings spanning his six-decade career.
