TimesTalks Festival: Nan Goldin and Dr. Andrew Kolodny
Moderated by Katie Benner of The New York Times
Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 3:00PM
242 West 41st Street
Join the fight against America's devastating opioid crisis with celebrated photographer Nan Goldin, whose addiction to Oxycontin inspired a series of honest self-portraits and the formation of advocacy group P.A.I.N., which is pushing pharmaceutical manufacturers to fund treatment for those suffering from addiction. Goldin, whose intensely personal and transgressive work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and museums all over Europe, will be in conversation with Dr. Andrew Kolodny, senior scientist at Brandeis University and executive director of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing, an organization that aims to reduce morbidity and mortality caused by overprescribing of opioids. The duo will discuss their personal experiences around the crisis, as well as the urgent political and social changes required to change the opioid epidemic, which has resulted in over 200,000 American deaths since 1999.
