8. “In Conversation: Artist Amir H. Fallah and Collector Liz Dimmitt” at Denny Dimin, New York

Amir H. Fallah, “They Will Trick You For Their Own Rewards,” 2020, acrylic on panel, 60 x 48 inches, courtesy of Denny Dimin Gallery.

Amir H. Fallah’s latest show, “Better a Cruel Truth Than a Comfortable Delusion,” on view at Denny Dimin through February 20, is inspired by his young son’s bedtime stories, but it still tackles hot-button issues such as racism, abuses of power, greed, and climate change. The artist will talk with collector Liz Dimmitt about the work, and the ways in which we pass along our value systems to children.

Price: Free
Time: 7 p.m.
