Artists, thinkers, and cultural icons are paired on stage with Jungian analysts or scholars and invited to respond to and interpret a folio from Jung’s Red Book as a starting point for a wide-ranging conversation. This series is based on a series that originated at the Rubin Museum of Art, New York.
The father of Archetypal Psychology, James Hillman is a leading scholar in Jungian thought and is recognized as a leading critic and observer of contemporary culture. Helen Hunt is an actress, film director, and screenwriter. She starred in the sitcom Mad About You for seven years before being cast in the romantic comedy As Good as It Gets, for which she won the Academy Award for best actress. Some of her other Hollywood credits include Cast Away, What Women Want, and Pay It Forward.
