Artist-in-Residence Neil Goldberg will hold “office hours” for library patrons. Maybe you’d like to chat about your art with him? Or flip through his collection of more than 1,000 index cards containing passing reflections he’s jotted down over the past 20 years, which The New York Times says “range from winkingly self-conscious to disarmingly insightful; most often they are a strange and hilarious combination of the two.” Refreshments will be served and everyone who comes gets a chance to win a copy of Goldberg’s new book of photographs, Other People’s Prescriptions.
About the Artist: Neil Goldberg makes video, photo, mixed media, and performance work that’s been exhibited throughout North American and Europe and is in the permanent collections of MoMA, the Museum of the City of New York, and elsewhere. The New York Times described his work as “tender, moving and sad but also deeply funny," and Time Out New York wrote “Goldberg has produced some of the most quietly intense and affecting art of his generation.” He teaches at the Yale University School of Art and is a Guggenheim fellow.
The Artists on Site Residency program is a partnership between Brooklyn Public Library and Brooklyn Arts Council.
THIS PROGRAM IS SUPPORTED, IN PART, BY PUBLIC FUNDS FROM THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS
