Panel Discussion “Stay Awhile: a Nathan Cordero Show”

June 26, 2019

In conversation: Glen Helfand, Independent Writer, Curator, Critic, and Educator, Liv Moe, Founding Director, Verge Center for the Arts, and Renny Pritikin, Retired Chief Curator, Contemporary Jewish Museum, will discuss Cordero’s life and work.

About the show: Organized by Verge with the collaboration of three friends of Nathan Cordero, Renny Pritikin, Gioia Fonda and Liv Moe, and the cooperation of his widow Stacy McConnen, this exhibition is a memorial celebration of the late artist. A selection of some 100 highlights from almost twenty years of Cordero’s output will demonstrate his work using excised images on wood, cut paper, and painted objects, with an emphasis on his obsession with language and rebus-like imagery.
