American art critic and historian Hal Foster joins the Los Angeles-based artist Charles Ray in conversation. A Princeton professor, Guggenheim Fellow, and widely published author, Foster’s latest book is Bad New Days: Art, Criticism, Emergency. Known for his enigmatic sculptures, Ray is also a UCLA Department of Art professor emeritus whose “career as an artist…is easily among the most important of the last twenty years” (Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times).
