Artist Michael Rakowitz and legendary rock critic Robert Christgau will discuss the breakup of The Beatles as history and as metaphor in a live talk this Wednesday, Oct. 17th at Lombard Freid Gallery in New York City.
This event was inspired by Rakowitz's "The Breakup," a set of works that includes radio broadcasts, film, a live concert in Jerusalem, memorabilia, and a deluxe limited edition LP produced in conjunction with Bidoun Projects.

The evening will be hosted by Sukhdev Sandhu, director of the Colloquium for Unpopular Culture at New York University and author of the lead essay in the liner notes for Live In Jerusalem 2010, which will be on sale at the event and from Bidoun.
Michael Rakowitz's The Breakup was originally commissioned for The Jerusalem Show IV by Al Ma'mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem. The 45min video of The Breakup will screen at the event at 6pm.
Longtime Village Voice writer-editor Robert Christgau has covered popular music for many publications, including Esquire, Creem, Playboy and Rolling Stone. Michael Rakowitz is an artist based in Chicago and New York City who's work has appeared in venues worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, UNESCO in Paris, and the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago.
