Art & the Power of Not Knowing

Maira Kalman is the author and illustrator of 25 books for children and young adults including Why We Broke Up, which she created with Daniel Handler, as well as the recent illustrated work Beloved Dog. A longtime contributor to The New Yorker magazine, Kalman is currently at work on an illustrated column based on her travels to museums and libraries. She is also in collaboration with choreographer John Heginbotham on a ballet inspired by her work The Principles of Uncertainty. In addition to  performing in the ballet, Kalman has also created the costumes, sets and libretti. Other celebrated projects include an illustrated edition of the Strunk and White classic The Elements of Style. She and composer Nico Muhly created an “opera”of the text that was performed at the New York Public Library, Dia Beacon on the Hudson and Lincoln Center. Kalman’s design work is as extensive and successful as her literary work. She has designed fabrics and accessories with Isaac Mizrahi, Kate Spade, Michael Maharam and the Target Corporation, as well as ballet sets and costumes for the Mark Morris Dance Company and mannequins for Ralph Pucci.
