What you'll learn in this lecture class:

The Extraordinary in the Ordinary with Roz Chast & Neil Goldberg

Acclaimed cartoonist Roz Chast and visual and performance artist Neil Goldberg reflect on finding humor, absurdity, and beauty in everyday moments – particularly through the eyes of New Yorkers. Brooklyn-born Chast has chronicled the anxieties, pleasures, and perils of contemporary city life as an author and longtime staff cartoonist for The New Yorker. Goldberg’s work also captures residents of the city amidst everyday moments – from ordering lunch at the deli to running for a train. His most recent project, Other People’s Prescriptions, a photographic tome of New Yorkers who wear glasses, showcases some of the vast perspectives that make up this metropolis. Together, Chast and Goldberg offer a glimpse of what it means to be an artist in and of New York City.

In this Olio, we'll work to dislodge heterosexuality’s...
