EMRCA principal Thomas Krens will be giving a series of four illustrated talks at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, beginning Sunday, October 21st, at 3:00 pm. Details are here.
The series goes under the title “Building Culture, Changing Societies” and will cover his experiences in Abu Dhabi and Bilbao, as well as in Manhattan and other cities where he developed major projects as director of the Guggenheim. The final talk, on February 10, 2019, will cover the “unfinished business” of EMRCA.
As someone who has been watching Tom give illustrated talks in various venues for longer than either of us would care to divulge, I can assure you that whatever the nominal subject, the matter will be wide-ranging, deeply fascinating, and visually spectacular. And more charming and humorous than you might expect, given the Krens rep for arrogance. You will have a hard time not getting swept up in his visions.
