MoMA Fairy Tale Event|
This is an event in correlation with the show Kiki Smith: Books, Prints, Things at MoMA in NYC. I just got a mailing about it, and thought it might interest people on this board who live in New York!
Retelling Little Red et al: Fairy Tales in Art and Literature
Tuesday, February 24, 2004, 6:30 p.m.
MoMA Film at The Gramercy Theatre
127 East 23 Street at Lexington Avenue
Fairy tales have inspired a myriad of creative endeavors across artistic disciplines. Kiki Smith’s representations of childhood heroines, such as Little Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland, reflect her personal reading of these stories and her manipulation of the timeworn tales’ plots and motivations. Panelists investigate the portrayal of feminine characters in classic fairy tales and discuss contemporary interpretations in art and literature. Moderated by Wendy Weitman, curator of the exhibition. Panelists include Kate Bernheimer, editor and novelist, Francine Prose, novelist, Jack Zipes, Professor of German and Comparative Literature, University of Minnesota, and Kiki Smith.
Tickets are $10, members $8, students $5, and can be purchased in person at the MoMA QNS Lobby Ticketing Desk, 33 Street at Queens Boulevard, and at the Visitor Center (open daily 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. and 3:00–5:30 p.m.) at the MoMA Design Store, 44 West 53 Street, Manhattan. Remaining tickets will be available at the door on the evening of the program.
