To mark the end of Dana DeGiulio’s Live or Die exhibition in the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, the artist will join curator Benjamin Chaffee, Associate Director of Visual Arts and Adjunct Instructor in Art, to discuss the works in the show, their installation, and the artist’s practice. Taking place symbolically on the last day of the show and in its final hour, guests will then be invited to join in deinstalling DeGiulio's artworks, participating in an important part of the life cycle of an exhibition.

Dana DeGiulio’s Live or Die will be on display from Tuesday, January 25 through Sunday, March 6, 2022. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday from Noon to 5pm. Visit the Live or Die exhibition page for more information.
