MacDowell and 92nd Street Y Salon: The Enactment of Identity

Nell Painter with Chang-rae Lee, Michael Chabon, and P. Carl
Nell Painter, Chang-rae Lee, Michael Chabon, and P. Carl

Please join Moderator and MacDowell Chair Nell Painter, author Chang-rae Lee, author P. Carl, and author and former MacDowell Chair Michael Chabon as they discuss the relationship between the artist’s vision, the creation of character and story, and the ways their own individual and social identities (however they interpret them) interact with their art practice.

This multi-disciplinary series of conversations about creativity and the arts serves to capture the magic of artists-in-residence from every discipline coming together on the MacDowell residency grounds. It features artists and luminaries from across the globe in dialogue including Change-rae Lee, P. Carl, Michael Chabon, Mary Schmidt Campbell, Lonnie Bunch, Marc Payot, as well as others soon to be announced. This partnership series between MacDowell and the 92nd Street Y will take place over the course of 2021 and is hosted by MacDowell Fellow, author, visual artist, and MacDowell Board Chair Nell Painter.
