Kyle Chayka - The Longing for Less: Living with Minimalism — in conversation with Tope Folarin — at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this deeply considered exploration of minimalism, Chayka, a widely published writer who started his career as a visual art critic for Hyperallergic and has since contributed to outlets outlets like n+1, The Paris Review, and New York Magazine, reminds us that “less is more” did not originate with decluttering guru Marie Kondo, but with the likes of architect and furniture designer Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe. Delving into what simplicity meant for 20th-century creators such as Donald Judd, Agnes Martin, John Cage, Julius Eastman, and other ascetics, poets, and philosophers, Chayka moves beyond today’s trends to illuminate the deeper emotional needs at the core of our enduring minimalist desires.
