On Wednesday, Bard Graduate Center hosted an evening of events with artist-in-residence Mark Dion. Commissioned as part of the Cultures of Conservation Initiative, Dion’s “The Conservator’s Cupboard” installation in the BGC lobby was the impetus for the evening. Two performances complemented the themes of the Conservator's cupboard: a dance performance choreographed by Annie-B Parson and a screening of Dion's "Artful History: A Restoration Comedy" made with filmmaker and artist Jason Simon in 1986.
