It Takes Two

April 23, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - April 24, 2016 @ 4:00 am

Why do creative minds gravitate toward one another? What is the unique result of creating in pairs? Why is the trope of the comic/tragic duo so prevalent in film and literature? In this durational, multidisciplinary program, the Guggenheim invites a wide range of speakers and performers to address these questions on the occasion of Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s retrospective, Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better. Organized by exhibition curators Nancy Spector and Nat Trotman, with Ben Vershbow, Director, NYPL Labs.

$30, $20 members, $15 students. Tickets include overnight access to the exhibition Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better and a cash bar.
