FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.

Visual arts exhibitions feature catalogues with newly commissioned articles. European theaters offer colloquia and program books with critical essays to accompany their stage productions. But do American theaters do enough to cultivate serious and sustained critical conversations around their work? Join us in welcoming renowned drama critic Tom Sellar to a panel, featuring Sarah Benson (Artistic Director, Soho Rep), Simon Dove (co-curator, Crossing the Line), and Meiyin Wang (co-director, Under the Radar Festival), that will look at what some theatre and art organizations are doing, and could do, to alter the model and enrich the dialogue.

Tom Sellar is editor of Yale’s international journal, Theater, and professor of Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism at the Yale School of Drama. He serves as chief theater critic of the Village Voice.
