Photographer Lynn Goldsmith’s late-1970s images of legendary musician Patti Smith have become iconic glimpses into a unique moment in music and performance history. In celebration of a new TASCHEN book combining Goldsmith’s photography and Smith’s poetry and text, the two come together for a unique event on the MCA Stage combining conversation and live performance.

MCA Talks highlight cutting-edge thinking and contemporary art practices across disciplines and are organized by Curator January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster with the Performance and Public Practice team.
