Michael Portnoy in discussion with Tirdad Zolghadr
Each semester the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College hosts a regular program of lectures by the foremost artists, curators, art historians, and critics of our day, situating the school and museum's concerns within the larger context of contemporary art production and discourse. Michael Portnoy is an American multimedia artist, choreographer, musician and actor. Portnoy's long-standing investigation of social exchange, and the rules of communication and play, is currently conducted through a series of 'abstract gambling' tables and related sculptures, drawing on gambling's roots in ritual and divination. From 5 to 7pm, admission free.
