ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

We're standing here in an exhibition, entitled "The Slipstream: Reflection,

Resilience and Resistance in the Art of Our Time."

This is an exhibition of 50 artists from the Brooklyn Museum's Contemporary

Collection.

The slipstream is actually a term borrowed from aeronautics.

It is the turbulence that follows a large moving object.

We are currently in the slipstream,

which offers us a perspective from which to look at 2020,

the large object that just passed.

Karen Davis' "Nicotine Sculpture" seems particularly relevant for this moment.

I selected it because it depicts a health care worker seemingly lost in

her own thoughts, regaining the strength to make it through another day.
