Menil Collection presents "A Common Language" with Sarah Rothenberg, Tony Hoagland and Carl Palazzolo

Menil Collection

A new series of occasional conversations, "A Common Language," invites artists from different disciplines to focus on and consider particular works of art in the collection. For the inaugural program, three notable artists — pianist Sarah Rothenberg, poet Tony Hoagland and painter Carl Palazzolo — will share ideas about art and artistic practice and, looking beyond their own fields and experiences, consider what they, as artists, have in common.

Regarding a particular work of art, they may diverge widely in opinion, setting the stage for agreement or disagreement as they invite audience participation.
