Please join us for the New York launch of the catalogue for Pato Hebert: Lingering, a solo exhibition of new photographs, sculptures and text works. Hosted by Arts Professor Karen Finley, Dept. of Art & Public Policy. (Register here)
Lingering addresses the COVID-19 condition of long-hauling, in which ongoing COVID symptoms persist well after the initial infection. Hebert’s exhibition confronts ableism and traces the process of living with chronic illness. Long hauling can include the frustrations of seeking treatment for the varied and extensive symptoms of long COVID. But it can also be a site for creativity and questioning. The exhibition and its accompanying catalogue celebrate mutual aid and care as vital collective responses to the relentless pandemic.
This event will feature catalogue contributors and include:
A performative reading by the artist Pato Hebert, Associate Arts Professor and Chair of the Dept. of Art & Public Policy at Tisch.
An exhibition overview by curator Ruti Talmor, Associate Professor in Media Studies at Pitzer College.
Commentary by Alexandra Juhasz, Distinguished Professor of Film at Brooklyn College, CUNY.
Free copies of the catalogue will be available to attendees.
This event is limited to NYU students, faculty & staff. RSVP Required.
*If necessary for the safety and health of all, due to Covid protocols, this event may be moved to Zoom.
