A Cross-Disciplinary Conversation with Marshall Brown and Jonathan Lethem

Layering, fragments, appropriation, cutting, higher cribbing, collage, and what artist Marshall Brown has called “creative miscegenation,” are all part of the crucible in which familiar themes are recast in art and literature. Is the resulting cross-disciplinary mashup an homage to what is left, what is kept, and what is removed? Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Lethem joins artist, Urbanist, Princeton University professor of Architecture and critical-thinking futurist Marshall Brown in a conversation about what Lethem termed the “Ecstasy of Influence.” This event is part of the opening celebration and catalogue release for the exhibition The Architecture of Collage: Marshall Brown (October 2, 2022 – January 7, 2023) on view in the Contemporary and Ala Story New Media Galleries.
