Charlie Hebdo, Zero Tolerance & Free Speech
January 26th, 2015
Like many around the globe, people in the arts are contemplating the complex issues of free speech after the tragic events at Charlie Hebdo. So Creative Time, MoMA PS1, and The Museum of Modern Art, in collaboration with Reuters, have joined together to create what we hope will be a timely and thoughtful conversation that dives into some of the difficult questions raised. Journalist, author, and former editor of The Sunday Times Sir Harold Evans will moderate a discussion that includes artist Kader Attia; artist Sharon Hayes; Vice News editor-in-chief Jason Mojica; author and historian Simon Schama; commentator, satirist, and architect Karl Sharro; and actor, playwright, and professor Anna Deavere Smith. Works by Hayes and other artists such as Pussy Riot, Yoko Ono, and Halil Altindere are currently on view in the exhibition Zero Tolerance at MoMA PS1, which reflects artists’ responses to the ongoing tension between freedom and control.
The event is SOLD OUT, but tune into the livestream Tuesday, Feb. 3, at 6:30 HERE.
