Screening & Conversation
BARBARA KASTEN IN CONVERSATION WITH CHELSEA CULPRIT
In conjunction with our current exhibition, Barbara Kasten: Stages, please join us for a special screening of the performance Inside Outside/Stages of Light, Barbara Kasten’s 1985 collaboration with noted choreographer and dancer Margaret Jenkins, which debuted at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and marked a critical moment in the artist’s interests in theatricality, the prop, and architectural scale. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Kasten and Chicago-based artist Chelsea Culprit.
Please Note: Event entry is first-come, first-serve and RSVP does not guarantee entry, so please plan to arrive early.
