New Museum announces the 2017 Stuart Regen Visionaries Series Speaker. 

Erling Kagge is a legendary name in arctic exploration, recognized for a number of extraordinary accomplishments. Over the course of his explorations, there were many ‘firsts’: he was the first person to surmount the ‘three poles’, the first to walk alone to the South Pole, together with  Børge Ousland they were the first to reach the North Pole unsupported. Even reading the bits of his prolific biography, is a source of inspiration. On November 28th, though, the New Museum audience will have the change to hear this man’s stories first hand. 

With the Stuart Regen Visionaries Series Speaker, the New Museum honors forward-thinking individuals in art, architecture, design, film, and related disciplines of contemporary culture. This year, the innovator in the series spotlight is Erling Kagge, who will deliver his Visionary lecture in the New Museum, in conjunction with the publication of his new book.
