Join artist Paola Pivi and Justine Ludwig, executive director of Creative Time, for a conversation about their new publication Paola Pivi. The monograph, edited by Ludwig, is published by Phaidon in association with The Andy Warhol Museum; Anchorage Museum; The Bass, Miami Beach; [mac] musée d’art contemporain de Marseille; and MAXXI Museo Nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Rome. It features more than 250 images, including previously unpublished work, together with five newly commissioned essays giving insight and perspective on Pivi’s diverse body of work. This program is related to our exhibition, Paola Pivi: I Want It All.

Following the discussion there will be an opportunity to enjoy refreshments in our entrance space, meet the artist and purchase the book.
