Join artist Neil Goldberg and special guests at New York's newest speakeasy stage for playful, intelligent nightlife where they talk about mortality.
Visual artist and performer Neil Goldberg muses on a selection of mortality-themed reflections and observations from his collection of 1,000+ handwritten index cards from the past twenty years. Special guests include Annie Lanzillotto, Christen Clifford, and Miguel Gutierrez, artists whose work in part deals directly with illness and loss. Neil Goldberg makes video, photo, mixed media, and performance work that’s been shown at MoMA, The New Museum, and the Museum of the City of New York. The NY Times described his work as “tender, moving and sad but also deeply funny," and Time Out New York wrote “Goldberg has produced some of the most quietly intense and affecting art of his generation.” His latest exhibition VOTE IN THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS is on view at Cristin Tierney Gallery from October 25 to December 15, 2018. https://neilgoldberg.com/
