Announcing an exciting new series, Hyperallergic ArtTalk. Starting Monday, May 20, Hyperallergic will invite a leading voice to spark discussion, debate, and further action about an evolving idea or project that they are passionate about in the world of art.

Our inaugural event will feature Klaus Biesenbach, director of MoMA PS1 and chief curator at large at The Museum of Modern Art, to speak about Expo 1: New York and the ideas behind the ambitious “exploration of ecological challenges in the context of the economic and socio-political instability of the early 21st century.”

Expanding the definition of festival-as-institution, EXPO 1: New York imagines a contemporary art museum dedicated to ecological concerns through the prism of interventions, solo projects, and group exhibitions, while including a school, a colony, a cinema, a geodesic dome, the Rain Room, and more.

The intimate event will take place at The Bedford (110 Bedford Avenue, entrance on North 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211), 7–9pm.

Complimentary cocktails will be provided by Pernod Absinthe, and tickets are available through Eventbrite. No tickets will be sold at the door.

  1. Hi there, my ticket says the event is at 1650 Bedford, above says 110 Bedford. Which is correct?

    1. Unfortunately, no. We want to keep the event small and intimate and decided against that idea. Also, there is no strong internet connection in the venue. But we will be sharing info/thoughts/sparking a conversation on social media if you want to join us.

      1. How about creating and posting a YouTube video of the event? I live on the west coast but would love to see it!

          1. Thanks for your quick response! Good luck with the talk! Looking forward to hearing about it afterwards!
