Mika Rottenberg and Marilyn Minter
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Margaret Liebman Berger Forum (5th Ave. & 42nd St., Manhattan)
5:30pm doors, 6-8pm
Video and installation artist Mika Rottenberg has received deserved attention since her debut for her humorous, surreal and politically incisive work, showcasing the extreme physiques of performers engaged in sometimes repetitive, often fantastic processes of manufacture and production. Marilyn Minter, her former teacher at School of the Visual Arts, joins Rottenberg to discuss the philosophical, political and historical foundations of their highly original art and practices.
This event coincides with her retrospective solo exhibition at de Appel Art Centre, Amsterdam, traveling later this year to M–Museum, Leuven, and the publication of Mika Rottenberg, the first monograph to cover the artist’s complete body of work to date.
