In this conversation, artist Robert Gober and chief curator Ann Temkin discuss the exhibition Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor and the accompanying publication. The program will focus on the development of Gober’s work, highlighting themes and motifs that emerged in the 1980s and that remain relevant to his practice today. This program is made possible by the Anna Marie and Robert F. Shapiro Seminar and Lecture Endowment Fund, established by Jeanne and Robert Savitt, Kristen and A. Andrew Shapiro, and Robert F. Shapiro, Jr.

Tickets ($15; $10 members and corporate members; $5 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, at the Film desk after 4:00 p.m., or at the Education and Research Building reception desk on the day of the program.
