Supreme’s most recent artist collaborator, Nan Goldin, is next to participate in the latest segment of the New York Times’ ongoing TimesTalks series. The iconic photographer will discuss her personal experiences surrounding America’s current opioid crisis. Goldin’s past addiction to Oxycontin initially inspired her renowned series of intimate self-portraits, which were featured in the Supreme partnership, alongside the creation of the P.A.I.N. advocacy group. The organization continues to pursue “pharmaceutical manufacturers to fund treatment for those suffering from addiction,” said the Times in a statement.
Goldin will join Dr. Andrew Kolodny in the upcoming discussion. Kolodny is a senior scientist at Brandeis University and executive director of Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing. The event will take place during the 20th Anniversary TimesTalks Festival weekend from April 13 up until 15.
Tickets are now available for purchase at a discounted price of approximately $20 USD each at New York Times’ official website.
