According to a press release, it will be devoted to “unpacking of the processes of art-making, along with the dilemmas of self and identity as seen from the point of view of an artist who constantly asks the question: ‘Am I in this game and how do I stay in this game? The game in question is that of a life lived in the arts.’ ”

The 7 p.m. talk will take place in theSkyline Room of the NJCU School of Business at 200 Hudson St., Harborside Plaza 2.

This is first program in NJCU’s 2016-2017 Presidential Lecture Series, which is presented by NJCU’s Center for the Arts. Future speakers have not been announced yet.
