Posted by on Mar 16, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Here’s an announcement from VCS faculty member Peter Hristoff about his upcoming participation in a series of brief talks at the Met Breuer at the end of this week:

Dear Friends:

I am happy to let you know that I have been invited to participate in “9 Minute Talks at the Met Breuer” on Friday March 18th in the 6 to 6:30pm sequence and on Saturday March 19th in the 11:00 – 11:30am sequence. On Friday I will be speaking about the vitality of an unfinished masterpiece and on Saturday about the tragedy of unfinished lives — lives cut short by the AIDS crisis.  Hope to see you at the Met Breuer.

The following additional information about the series is quoted from the Met Museum website:

Hear creative voices from across New York City respond to the idea of “unfinished” in just 9 minutes—the time it takes to travel between The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Breuer, and between the entrance of Fort Tryon Park and The Met Cloisters. Names and times for presenters are subject to change. Conversations start on the half hour. Please check lobby signage or ask a staff member for gallery locations. ASL interpretation available for selected talks. [See the links above for times when ASL interpretation is available.]

This program relates to the theme of “unfinished” as presented in the exhibition Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible.  

Education Programs at The Met Breuer are made possible in part by Mr. and Mrs. Donald J. Gordon.  

The Peter Hristoff Artist Residency is made possible by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
