Art galleries are luxury boutiques. They exist to sell things to the rich.

A Celebration of Yve-Alain Bois
Sunday, December 11, 3 - 5PM
Miguel Abreu Gallery
88 Eldridge Street

On the occasion of Yve-Alain Bois' retirement from the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, as well as the release of his new volume of collected essays, An Oblique Autobiography (no place press), this afternoon features five of his former PhD students reflecting on his indelible contribution to the history of art and art criticism.

With presentations by:

James Meyer, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.

Maria Gough, Joseph Pulitzer Professor of Modern Art, Department of the History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University

David Joselit, Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor and Chair, Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies, Harvard University

Christine Mehring, Mary L. Block Professor of Art History and the College, University of Chicago

Michelle Kuo, Marlene Hess Curator of Painting and Sculpture, Museum of Modern Art, New York

A group conversation with Bois and the speakers will follow, moderated by Pamela M. Lee. Copies of An Oblique Autobiography (ed. Jordan Kantor) will be available for purchase.
Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. A livestream of the event will be available on YouTube.
Abreu also represents Straub and Huillet.  It's where I saw Badiou, without Zizek.  Chantal Akerman was represented by Marian Goodman
