The Best New Work

Tue - Thu, May 8 to May 10, 12:00pm - 12:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

Artist David Levine’s The Best New Work is a series of performances designed to deliver canonical works of art criticism to a wider audience by performing them, as personal monologues, in the exhibition venue itself. Actors drift through the galleries, gift shop, cafe, and open spaces of the building, performing their essay as though on an endless loop. The performers’ attitude, delivery, affect, and mood reflect their location, their audience, and time of day.
