I’m interested in awkward operas; operas in which there are unsolved riddles… in which there’s a space—both musically and thematically—for a world to evolve and be imagined around the story. — William Kentridge
In conjunction with the upcoming Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Alban Berg’s WOZZECK—featuring production design by Kentridge—the artist will be at the Morgan Library andMuseum for a talk about his work.
Vince Aletti—collector, photography critic, and Peter Hujar’s East Village neighbor and friend—will join David Wojnarowicz biographer Cynthia Carr, author Jonathan D. Katz, and Hujar model and printing lab co-founder Gary Schneider for a conversation about Hujar, in conjunction with the Morgan exhibition of the photographer’s work.
