Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Marcel Broodthaers: A Retrospective, the artists Rodney Graham and Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster will be in conversation on Wednesday 4 May, 7pm at the Museum of Modern Art in New York to discuss contemporary artistic responses to Broodthaers’s work and the continued relevance of the artist's short yet influential career.
From Broodthaers’s early objects, variously made of mussel shells, eggshells, and books of his own poetry, to his most ambitious project, the Musée d’Art Moderne, Département des Aigles (Museum of modern art, Department of eagles), and his distinctive Décors, his work has had a profound influence on a broad range of contemporary artists, and he remains vitally relevant to cultural discourse at large.
This evening is the second in a series of conversations focused on the work of Broodthaers. The first evening, devoted to Broodthaers’s films, takes place on Monday, May 2, as part of MoMA's Modern Mondays series.
