The Mildred and George Weissman Program

Kelly Taxter, Barnett and Annalee Newman Curator of Contemporary Art, leads a discussion on the power of narrative with artists Rachel Feinstein and Lisa Yuskavage, filmmakers Sofia Coppola and Tamara Jenkins, and singer/songwriter Florence Welch, who all contributed to the catalog for the exhibition Maiden, Mother, Crone.
