A Panel Discussion of BAM: The Complete Works
Featuring panelists Sharon Lehner (Director of BAM Archives), Phillip Lopate (Contributor), John Rockwell (Contributor), and Susan Yung (Associate Editor and Contributor)
Moderated by editor Steven Serafin
BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) is at once the oldest performing arts center in the US and a legendary nexus for contemporary global and local culture. From its opening night in 1861, BAM has forged an unmatched artistic legacy, emerging in the second half of the 20th century as the preeminent stage for the most visionary
artists and performers of the age. The gorgeous new book BAM: The Complete Works is a narrative chronology of the past 150 years, with more than 350 archival images of artists and performances and essays by and about some of the many artists integral to the fabric of BAM’s identity. Several of the book’s distinguished contributors come together for a panel discussion of the book and BAM’s history this evening, moderated by the book’s editor Steven Serafin. Greenlight is honored to mark our new relationship as BAM’s official merchandise vendor by hosting this exciting discussion event; BAM: The Complete Works will be for sale for $65 (list price $95) at the bookstore and the new “Greenlight at BAM” kiosks.
