at The Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Solomon R. Gugge, $40, $35 for members and Friends of Works & Pr
On Monday, September 26, 2016 at 7:30pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents a discussion with the creators and excerpts of Steppenwolf Theatre Company's The Fundamentals by Erika Sheffer prior to the play’s world premiere on November 10.
A Steppenwolf commission, The Fundamentals explores America’s corporate culture through its main character, Millie, a resourceful young mother and housekeeper at a New York luxury hotel. When an opportunity in management gives her the chance to leave her blue-collar life behind, she is faced with how much, and who, she is willing to sacrifice.
Please join us for a closing reception for the exhibition reset, on view at Garis & Hahn from September 10-25, 2016, and curated by Kimi Kitada.
Artists include: Fischer Cherry, Sarah Hardie, Ian Hatcher, Jenn Hyland, Eric Pickersgill, Allison L. Wade
The selected works in reset explore our personal interactions, mediated by technology. In Eric Pickersgill’s photographic series, Removed (image above), family members, couples, and individuals are staring at their smartphones, which are imagined and not physically present in the images. The artist reacts to behavioral norms of using one’s smartphone constantly, and focuses our gaze on people who are spending time with one another, yet are disconnected and detached.
Dr. David A. Fishman, a leading cancer surgeon and researcher from NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens will present the seminar, “Are You At Risk for Ovarian Cancer? What Every Woman Should Know."
This seminar, in partnership with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, Inc. (NOCC), will focus on the risks of developing ovarian cancer, and will discuss early screening options for ovarian and other women’s cancers. Dr. Fishman will address the important steps you can take to lower your risk, as well as the latest treatment methods available for patients.
