Flutist and MacArthur fellow

The New York instalment of ‘Notes from a Biscuit Tin’ features philosopher Jenny Judge, poet Laura Mullen and flutist and MacArthur fellow Claire Chase, in an evening-long exploration of the various ways in which philosophers, artist and musicians respectively set about making sense of the world.

A conversation between Judge and Mullen on the theme of Art in Mary Midgley’s work is interwoven with Chase’s performances of improvisatory works by pioneering experimental and electronic composer Pauline Oliveros.

Tickets will be available in advance (online), and also on the door.
