- Mowry Baden and Robert Hullot-Kentor: Mowry Baden has influenced a generation of sculptors in Canada and the United States through his engaging, participatory installations. For almost 40 years, he has challenged notions about contemporary sculpture through a staggering number of projects and artworks that borrow from psychology, architecture and performance. Robert Hullot-Kentor is a critic, philosopher and translator whose recent book, Things Beyond Resemblance (Columbia University Press, 2006), collected his essays about philosopher Theodor W. Adorno. Presented by the BFA Fine Arts and Visual and Critical Studies Departments. Tuesday, April 1, 6:30pm, 133/141 West 21st Street, room 101C. Free and open to the public.
