Three Point Stance: Embodying the Politics and Pleasures of Football and Basketball
In conjunction with the exhibition The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal
January 9–March 31, 2018
Featuring NYU’s Noel Anderson, Clinical Assistant Professor of Art & Art Professions (Steinhardt); Pato Hebert, Associate Arts Professor, Art & Public Policy (TSOA); and Daniel P. Perl, Professor of Neuropathology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, this conversation will examine the materiality and aesthetic forms of football and basketball to address the paradoxical mixture of elegance, ferocity, normative masculinity, highly ritualized style, racial identity, and trauma that characterize both games.
Co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of Art & Public Policy (TSOA) and Grey Art Gallery.
Free of charge, capacity limited, and subject to change. Photo ID required for entrance to NYU buildings.
