Across time and space
less than half is “Face to Face” with not one but two great women: artist Chitra Ganesh and curator Beth Citron of the Rubin Museum. Join us as we talk museum interventions, animation, and public art on a scale you’ve never seen it before.
Hiroxi, Ubix, Orbis Tertius
Berlin-based Berta Fischer makes sculptures out of sheets of iridescent acrylic glass, contorting them in order to capture and refract light in ways that seem out of this world.
Milk and Bones
less than half is “Face to Face” with Allison Hill-Edgar, who knows bodies inside and out––she trained to be a doctor, after all. Read about her winding path towards becoming a painter to her unusual approach to painting her subjects submerged in milk.

less than half is “Face to Face” with Elana Herzog who uses her work to tell the complex story of the history of the world through textiles, which have embedded within them more information than you might think.
More than half
