On September 5, 2014 The Rubin opens the first museum exhibition devoted to the extensive Indian influences in Francesco Clemente’s work Francesco Clemente: Inspired by India. To further explore the chief motivations in his life and work, the artist will take to the Rubin stage eight times with eight personalities from very different walks of life.

About the Speaker
Since the runaway success of her memoir Just Kids (2010), Patti Smith is as well known as a writer as she is a rocker. Her seminal album Horses was followed by nine releases including Radio Ethiopia, Easter, Dream of Life, Gone Again and Trampin’. Her artwork was first exhibited at Gotham Book Mart in 1973, and she has been associated with the Robert Miller Gallery since 1978. Strange Messenger, a retrospective of three hundred works, made its debut at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and has been exhibited world-wide, most notably at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, Haus der Kunst, Munich and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam. Her books include Witt, Babel, Woolgathering, The Coral Sea, and Patti Smith Complete 1975 –2006. Patti was last on stage at the Rubin in 2005 for The John Giorno Poetry Festival: Everyone Gets Lighter.
