Red Book Dialogues: Bill Viola & Beverley Zabriskie

Red Book Dialogues: Bill Viola & Beverley Zabriskie

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.
