Politically motivated, Havana-native Bruguera explores the relationship between art, activism, and social change, often through the lens of immigration, while the New York-based Gilmore engages with ideas of femininity, gender, and sex. In this intimate conversation, the two artists will discuss their turn to performance as a medium for critiquing contemporary issues of politics, gender, and society. Prior to the conversation, Gilmore will stage a live, site specific performance using the Museum's architecture as inspiration. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=248308 Museum of the City of New York Museum of the City of New York
