Steve McQueen Dialogue with Stuart Comer



The director of Shame, Hunger, and 12 Years a Slave—films known for boundary-pushing performances and true-life subject matter—discusses his work spanning the worlds of art and cinema with Stuart Comer, the new chief curator of media and performance art at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Hailed in a 2010 New York Times headline as an “Intense Seeker of Powerful Elegance,” Steve McQueen has become known for his formalism and his willingness to engage with controversial content in powerfully human ways. This dialogue marks McQueen’s first visit to the Walker Cinema.
