Description Co-Presented with the Onassis Cultural Center NY
What is the truth? Simon Critchley, one of today's leading contemporary philosophers and moderator of the popular New York Times philosophy series "The Stone," presents On Truth (and Lies), a new conversation series that encourages audiences to abandon their convictions at the door and explore the ambiguity of reality.
For this installment, Critchley explores the truth and lies of contemporary art by way of French-Algerian artist and filmmaker Phillipe Parreno, whose work examines the ambiguous line between artistic creation and re-creation, fetish and authenticity. The evening will conclude with a Q&A and reception.
