This Thursday at the Morgan Library & Museum, artist Julie Mehretu and author Jonathan Safran Foer will be in conversation to discuss the films that have inspired their lives and work. Mehretu is a MacArthur fellow and an award-winning artist known for her densely-layered paintings and prints. Foer is the author of Everything is Illuminated, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Eating Animals, and other books.
The discussion will be moderated by Antonio Monda, the Artistic Director of the Le Conversazioni literary festival. The talk begins at 7 pm, and tickets can be purchased here. The cost is $20 for non-members, $15 for members, and free for students with valid ID.
Anyone with an interest in the convergence of visual art, film, and literature should certainly attend this event.
