Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont St., Brooklyn)
BHS, in partnership with Art21 as part of its Access ’12 initiative, presents a sneak preview of the sixth season of Art in the Twenty-First Century. We will preview an episode titled History, showing a segment on contemporary artist Glenn Ligon, who uses historical events to explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic ‘truth’, and create narratives based on personal experiences. Jennifer L. Morgan, Professor of Social Analysis and History at New York University will lead a discussion following the screening.
