Eduardo Navarro and Dejan Lukic will talk about Navarro’s current show at the Drawing Center titled Into Ourselves, and its central idea of "shifting aesthetic primacy away from the eye and the world of ideas to the stomach and the metabolic system." In addition, Navarro's earlier works, ranging from installation to performance, where art and science converge with intricate and humorous simplicity, will be addressed.
