Entrée/Encore is a series of artists’ talks, discussions, and performances, launched in Fall 2016, which presents our artists and curators-in-residence in dialogue with the cultural community in NY and abroad. Whether it is former residency artists who return to NARS to share how their practice has developed since and new work, or current artists presenting ongoing projects, this initiative provides artists a critical environment to experiment with or contextualize multidisciplinary practices and perspectives within the languages of art and critical socio-political concerns.
