LECTURE: NATO THOMPSON
@Harvard Carpenter Center // 6pm // Free
There’s still time to catch the internationally acclaimed exhibition Living as Form (The Nomadic Version) at Carpenter Center. TONIGHT Nato Thompson, the curator himself (!!!), will be at Harvard to discuss his exhibition and talk about how we make sense of our evolving world. Living as Form is currently parked at Harvard’s Carpenter Center on an international tour- with this being its 15th installment since 2012! On view through April 6, this exhibition contemplates the evolving face of cultural production and charts over twenty years of cultural works that blur the forms of art and everyday life emphasizing participation, dialogue and community engagement. (see our original posting here)
Prior to his lecture, from 5-6pm Caitlin Berrigan will be there serving up “Lessons in Capitalism.” Come and get your free financial help! Write down your questions and shoot them through a system of tubes – similar to a bank teller tube – sucking up your questions to be answered by a room full of “professional advice givers.”
