This panel will be moderated by Massimiliano Gioni, Curator, New Museum.
Passion: For Love or Money is the first in a series of Hot Button! panels organized by the New Museum in association with the School of Art at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. Hot Button! represents the first programmatic initiative of the New Museums recently appointed curatorial team: Richard Flood, Chief Curator; Laura Hoptman, Senior Curator; and Massimiliano Gioni, Curator. The three panels Passion: For Love or Money?; Location, Location, Location: Is Provincial a Bad Word?; and The IT Factor: What Makes Something Hot? are presented in anticipation of the re-opening of the New Museum at 235 Bowery in late 2007, and represent the spirit of an institution dedicated to new art and new ideas, and ready to embrace debate. Hot Button! panels aim to engage a broad audience interested in contemporary culture by featuring leading figures in contemporary art, architecture, cuisine, design and fashion in frank conversation with each other.
