One Version of Events: A Performance Work-in-Progress with Neil Goldberg


"One Version of Events" is a performance work-in-progress that explores the condition of being embodied – specifically the politics and poetics of our imperative to eat – by combining experimental video and photography, improvisational storytelling and scripted text. Like the Wislawa Szymborska poem it is named after, the piece contemplates the inherent strangeness of our need to kill and consume other living organisms in order to survive.


Neil Goldberg has exhibited his video, photo and sculptural work at The Museum of Modern Art; The New Museum of Contemporary Art; The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum; The Wexner Center for the Arts; and The Kitchen. In 2012 his work entitled Stories the City Tells Itself, was included in Time Out New York's "Best Art of 2012" list. His work has been supported by the Guggenheim Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Experimental Television Center, CEC ArtsLink, Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony.

This event is free and open to the public. Photo ID required to enter NYU buildings.
