Fun Problems with Smart People

A book opening!

To mark the launch of Problems and Provocations: Grand Arts 1995-2015, transcendental tour guide Timothy “Speed” Levitch leads a dynamic cruise through creative practice, as artists, writers, and thinkers from Grand Arts’ constellation take the stage to puzzle out problems of risk, magic, pleasure, ghosts, and what comes after art. Come find us in NY and KC!
