Artist Park McArthur will present a selection of letters, images, and ephemera by artists included in the exhibition I, YOU, WE. Personal and professional correspondence housed in the Whitney Museum Library archive show a time that turned letters into emails, and writers into typists looking at screens against a backdrop of identity politics, class warfare, and censorship. Together, McArthur and Shira Brisman, Mellon Postdoctoral fellow in art history at Columbia University, will discuss the epistolary mode in relation to the exhibition’s themes.
$8 general admission; $6 senior citizens and students.
