Mirror Cells: A Salon
If you’re looking for Thursday night activities on the other side of the bridge, the Whitney Museum (99 Gansevoort St., at Tenth Ave.; 212-570-3600) has you covered with “Mirror Cells: A Salon.” From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., the artists represented in “Mirror Cells,” which opened at the museum on May 13 and runs through August 21, will host a conversation with guests from an array of backgrounds and professions, including neuroscientist Sara Constantino, psychoanalyst Ezra Feinberg, art historian Leah Pires, and curator Jody Graf. “Mirror Cells” explores the way in which the human brain reacts to, and empathizes with, the feelings and experiences of others, so this conversation will explore the theme from artistic and scientific perspectives. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for members, students, and seniors. The event is sold out, but there are stand-by tickets available.
