Outside the Box offers gallery-based talks given by a variety of guest speakers over the course of a season. In this series, lecturers with diverse backgrounds and affinities will address the New Museum's exhibition "Nari Ward: We the People" in forty-five- to sixty-minute presentations taking place in the Museum's galleries. Emphasizing the Museum's strong commitment to new art and new ideas, Outside the Box Gallery Talks are open to the public and are intended to provide participants with multidisciplinary perspectives on New Museum exhibitions. To this end, lecturers will speak about the exhibition or themes emergent in Ward's works from the various positions they occupy—be they academic, artistic, personal, political, or otherwise. With their distinct individual relationships to the artist and works on view, lecturers will engage in rich investigations that will illuminate and probe the Museum's current exhibition program. Additional Outside the Box talks for the spring season include: Thursday March 28, 3 PM: Abbe Schriber Thursday April 18, 3 PM: Eric N. Mack Gallery talks are free with paid Museum admission, but attendance is limited. Gallery admission must be purchased in order to reserve a spot. Members can reserve here. Students and seniors can RSVP by email for discounted admission. Ishion Hutchinson was born in Port Antonio, Jamaica. He is the author of two poetry collections: Far District (2010) and House of Lords and Commons (2016). He is the recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Joseph Brodsky Rome Prize, the Whiting Writers Award, the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature, among others. He is a contributing editor to the literary journals The Common and Tongue: A Journal of Writing & Art and teaches in the graduate writing program at Cornell University. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=364422 New Museum New Museum
