White Columns is pleased to announce 'White Columns TALKS' - a series of conversations with artists and curators held on the occasion of our 50th anniversary exhibition ‘From The Archives: White Columns & 112 Greene Street / 112 Workshop, 1970 – 2021…’ , which is on view at the gallery through July 31.
The first talk in the series is between Brooklyn Museum Senior Curator Catherine Morris and White Columns' director Matthew Higgs. Morris will discuss her pioneering 1999 White Columns exhibition 'Food', that considered the history of the - now legendary - artist-run SoHo restaurant 'Food'. About 'Food' Morris has said: "The restaurant 'Food' was ... a remarkable place, created and run by an exceptional group of artists at an extraordinary historical moment. With Gordon Matta-Clark serving as anarchistic genius in residence, the restaurant was at once a meeting place, a business and a conceptual work of art."
