23-06-2017 12:00:00 23-06-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Theater of the Resist | 6:00 Pm –8:00 Pm Bassem Youssef, political comedian, writer, producer, physician, media critic, and television host MetLiveArts in collaboration with media and culture writer Kali Holloway presents a nine-week summer series of edgy, timely, and pointedly political performances and films on the Fifth Floor of The Met Breuer. Theater of the Resist takes its name from art making—a technique where the artist uses opposing material to "resist" the medium and thus generating negative space in which to create. This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Body Politic: Video from The Met Collection, on view at The Met Breuer, June 20–September 3, 2017. It will highlight dance, spoken word, music and film from communities that are outside the hegemony. Hosts include: political journalist and musician Kali Holloway, WQXR host Terrance McKnight, and musician and NYPR host/podcaster Helga Davis. This program is offered Free with Museum Admission, thanks to Janet and Howard Kagan and The Fan Fox & Lesley R. Samuels Foundation, Inc. The series is made possible by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=232797 The Met The Met
