A magician, a palm reader, and a cultural historian walk into the Sigmar Polke show, "Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963–2010" (until 3 August), at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (really?). On the evening of 23 July, they’ll all be there, along with a conservator, a critic and a curator, among others. And you’re invited too. The event is part of the museum’s Pop Rally series, which features events revolving around curatorial programming. Each expert will “illuminate aspects of Sigmar Polke's complex body of work through the lens of their respective areas of expertise”, according to the museum. So if you’ve ever wondered what the late German artist looks like through the eyes of an expert in hallucinogens (seriously), now is your chance. Tickets are $15 ($13 for members).
