Looking at Global Inequity

On Tuesday, February 12 Leila Heller Gallery in Manhattan will host a panel discussion on the extreme economic disparities in global society. The 6:30–8 pm discussion is free and open to the public, and is being held in conjunction with a two-person exhibition at the gallery featuring the work of Gayle Mandle MFA 97 PT/PR and her daughter Julia Mandle.


Panelists include Chrystia Freeland, author of the well-received new book Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else; Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, who recently published The Price of Inequality; Roger Mandle, an art historian and former president of RISD, among many other art-focused positions throughout his career; and Gayle. The topical show itself runs through February 16.
