Sarah Wilson: The Visual World of French Theory
Tuesday, November 23rd at 6:30pm
Join Sarah Wilson as she speaks about her revelatory work on prominent French philosophers of the 1960s and 1970s—including Sartre, Deleuze, Bourdieu, and Foucault—and their encounters with the artists of their times, most particularly the protagonists of the Narrative Figuration movement. Wilson brings to life the intense and radical thinking of the period through this unique dialogue between the artists and writers of the time—in critical texts and catalogue prefaces—that illuminates not only the work of the artists but also the production of the philosopher-writer concerned.
