Celebrated author, reporter, and cultural observer Lawrence Weschler’s irrepressible sense of wonder has led him to explore an extraordinary range of subjects, including but not limited to art, astronomy, exile, medicine, mysticism, and political upheaval. During this one-hour conversation with Federico Solmi the uncanny collector and connector of wonders will dive deep into the underlying politics, methods, and antecedents behind Solmi’s brilliant and transformative multimedia works—as well as the underlying disagreement (or divergence of sensibilities) with Virtual Reality goggles. A lively conversation and Q&A to be sure!
