A celebration of the philosophical vision of Mary Midgley ft. Claire Chase, Laura Mullen, Jenny Judge
‘Notes from a Biscuit Tin’ is a yearlong celebration of the centenary of philosopher Mary Midgley, in the form of a series of public exchanges between philosophers and poets on various themes from Midgley’s work. The New York instalment will feature philosopher Jenny Judge in conversation with poet Laura Mullen, as well as MacArthur ‘genius’ and Avery Fisher prizewinner Claire Chase (flute), about Midgley’s philosophical vision. Mullen will read a new poem commissioned for the event, and Chase will perform improvisatory works by pioneering electronic musician Pauline Oliveros (among others).
Tickets are free (though limited), and available here.
