Share Brooklyn on Brooklyn: Mark Morris and Isaac Mizrahi

Event Details

Brooklyn on Brooklyn is our exciting new series where two Brooklyn luminaries engage in a free-form conversation: no moderator, no script, no notes, no cues.  Simply two smart, interesting, accomplished locals talking to each other, and the audience gets to watch. 

 

With Isaac Mizrahi and Mark Morris, we launch this effort with great style.   Mizrahi, who was born and raised in Midwood, has been a fashion industry leader for almost 30 years, having dressed some of the most distinguished women in the world, including Audrey Hepburn, Hilary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Julia Roberts, Rihanna, and Meryl Streep; while doing so, he has received many accolades including four Council of Fashion Designers of America awards.  He is also a multi-hyphenate: costume and set designer, entrepreneur, television personality, cabaret performer, and all-around lifestyle guru.  

 

Morris, whose artistic home is in downtown Brooklyn, is artistic director of the internationally renowned Mark Morris Dance Group and Music Ensemble, and is perhaps our nation's most acclaimed living choreographer.  Much in demand as a ballet choreographer and opera director, Morris frequently collaborates with preeminent musicians, orchestras, and opera companies, performing in the world’s most prestigious dance and music venues.  His Mark Morris Dance Center, founded in 2001, provides outreach programs for local children and seniors, and a school offering dance classes to students of all ages and abilities. 

 

These long-time friends are not shy about sharing their many opinions on many topics, so be prepared for a wide ranging, and potentially ribald, discussion of high culture, low culture, and anything, really, on the minds of two incredibly versatile and engaging interlocutors.

Organizer

Brooklyn Historical Society

Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) functions as a library, museum, and urban education center dedicated to the people of Brooklyn, providing opportunities for civic dialogue and thoughtful engagement. Each year, 70,000 students and teachers use our innovative programs and resources to learn about American History and scholars conduct important academic research in our Library and Archives. Through partnerships with government and community groups, BHS reaches communities throughout New York City, serving as a hub for information and ideas about Brooklyn and its complex history.

Housed in a magnificent Landmark Building in Brooklyn Heights, designed by George Post in 1878, BHS maintains an important collection of historical manuscripts, books, photographs, maps, paintings, objects, and ephemera dating back to the 17th century. BHS is a long-standing yet modern institution in both outlook and action. We are Brooklyn’s preeminent history center, responsible for preserving and presenting Brooklyn’s history; our collection continues to grow through the acquisition of contemporary and historical works of art, photographs, documents, books, and oral histories.
