LECTURES AND SYMPOSIA
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
1071 Fifth Ave. at 89th St.
Friday, April 6, 6:30, and Saturday, April 7, 2:30
This weekend the Guggenheim is hosting a two-day seminar focusing on the growing ideological divide across the United States, particularly looking at the protests held online and in person against certain art shows in museums amid fake news and digital swarming. “Culture and Its Discontents” begins April 6 at 6:30 with a keynote conversation featuring progressive political commentator Sally Kohn, former Obama White House deputy chief of staff Alyssa Mastromonaco, and artist Hank Willis Thomas. The symposium continues April 7 at 2:30 with two panel discussions moderated by Brian Lehrer, “Contemporary Culture Wars” with Kurt Bardella, Jehmu Greene, Angela Nagle, and Suzanne Nossel, followed by “Outrage Activism,” with Danielle Citron, Molly Crockett, and Melissa Ryan. On view currently at the museum are the politically charged “Danh Vo: Take My Breath Away,” “Josef Albers in Mexico,” and “Guggenheim Collection: Brancusi.”
