NYU Silver Center for Arts and Science, Room 300, 32 Waverly Place
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.
This event is in conjunction with the exhibition The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal, January 9 – March 31, 2018, at the Grey Art Gallery, NYU.
Free and open to the public, but capacity is limited. Please see Grey Art Gallery website for more details and updates.
