Lecturer performs in NYC

Visual arts program lecturer Pia Lindman (S.M. 1999) participated in New York City's "What Comes After: Cities, Art and Recovery," an international summit focusing on arts and culture after catastrophe, organized by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. The summit took place Sept. 8-11.

For her "The New York Times Performance," Lindman re-enacted gestures of grieving collected from the pages of The New York Times. Lindman will also perform the piece in Helsinki (Oct. 15-Nov. 6), New York City's Battery Park (Oct. 30), at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics in New York (Nov. 12) and at Artists Space in New York (Dec. 6).
