Quijote Talk: Mira Schor

Negotiating the Antithetical
Thursday, December 5, 6 pm
Free and open to the public

Shifting themes and riptides in my writing and studio practice—or, negotiating between what you do in the face of what other people think should be done and what you do no matter what anyone says.

Mira Schor is a painter and writer living in New York City. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Marvelli Gallery in New York and CB1 Gallery in Los Angeles. She is the author of A Decade of Negative Thinking: Essays on Art, Politics, and Daily Life and Wet: On Painting, Feminism, and Art, and of the blog “A Year of Positive Thinking.” She edited The Extreme of the Middle: Writings of Jack Tworkov, and is co-editor with Susan Bee of M/E/A/N/I/N/G: A Journal of Contemporary Art Issues, and, currently, M/E/A/N/I/N/G Online. Recent writings have appeared in Artforum and The Brooklyn Rail. She is an associate teaching professor in Fine Arts at Parsons The New School for Design.

Quijote Talks take place in our library on 21st Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues in Chelsea, usually on Thursdays at 6:30 pm. Named after our favorite after-lecture hangout, El Quijote in the Chelsea Hotel, and inspired by the knight errant himself, this new series consists of pointed talks and discussions about relevant pasts and possible futures.
