Time Talks is quite possibly the most unique lecture series in the world. It features by far some of
the most talked about and respected celebrities doing exactly as the title Time Talks suggests, talking or rather discussing
their careers in-depth. If you are interested in taking a deep dive into a variety of career topics from people who living
and breathing it, Time Talks is a great opportunity to listen to stories that provide an opportunity to live vicariously through
the lives of these outstanding people and their celebrity. The topics and specialist vary from sports, politics, literature,
journalism, performing arts and science. While sports and politics, or any of the other career paths, may not be of interest
for everyone, there is certainly the human side of each lecturers' experience that is worth experiencing and likely a great
opportunity to glean knowledge. The lecture series, Time Talks, is just as respected and popular as the company it keeps on
stage… its celebrity speakers. The world-renowned The New York Times is the brilliant intellectual culprit behind the
development and production of this smart lecture series.
The New York Times Time Talks is often
held at The Times Center. The Center is located within The New York Times Center found smack dab in the heart of Times Square.
Of course, that is not the only place where these excellent talks are held. There is an incredibly long list of influential
celebrities and movers and shakers who have participated in this one-of-a-kind lecture series. The list includes Marina Abramović,
a performance artist who discussed her incredibly provoking art and her interest in collaboration. The interview-style series
is led by a New Yorks Times reporter and, in the case of Marina Abramovic, it was Patricia Cohen. Cohen is a culture reporter
for The New York Times and an author of the work entitled "In Our Prime: The Invention of the Middle Age." What made Marina
Abramović an ideal candidate for Time Talks, she is an forward-thinking artist who utilizes her own body to push it to
the limits of its capacity. A 2010 retrospective at the MoMA in which she collaborated with Robert Wilson, Antony Hegarty
and Willem Dafoe became what many consider to be her landmark works. The collaboration led to a relatively experimental biographical
opera entitled, "The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic." Another example of the outstanding participants is Matt Damon, who
despite being an Academy Award- and Golden Globe Award-winning screenwriter for Good Will Hunting, is an incredibly recognizable
philanthropist who seeks the greater good for communities across the globe. During the Time Talks, Matt Damon, accompanied
in spirit by John Krasinski, his co-star and co-writer of the film, "The Promised Land," which focuses on the topic of "fracking."
Fracking is considered a relatively controversial means through which natural gas is extracting from the earth. Matt Damon
and Gus Van Sant discuss their careers and their former and future collaborations with Hugo Lindgren, editor of the New York
Times. Who is coming soon, Sheryl Crow. Audiences have the opportunity to share the evening with the nine-time Grammy Award
winning feminist-inspiring musician with Jon Pareles, a music critic, about her role within the country music genre. What
is great about Time Talks is that there is not a single event that is the same in the series.
discussing a series that is brought to audiences by the one and only The New York times, its is incredibly difficult to determine
a "breakthrough" moment. The respected and renowned news doesn't needs to ask its amazing guests more than once to participate.
What makes Time Talks highly regarded is that it comes from The New York Times. Once upon a time, The
New York Times did not have the capacity to share information as it does today through YouTube interviews. The New York Times
was able to report on the devastating loss of the Titanic during its maiden voyage without the perks of today's technology.
It was the intelligence and great journalism of the early managing editor, Carr Van Anda that brought the heartbreaking news
to its readers on its front page. It was its continued reporting of this caliber that led to The New York Times getting the
reputation it has today. Nowadays, The New York Times utilizes all aspects of innovation to bring information on myriad topics
to its global audiences. The New Times Time Talks are just another example of how new technologies mixed with traditional
interviews creates one-of-a-kind breaking news stories. At the Time Talks, one is not certain what kind of breaking news about
one of the lives of these reputable movers might come to be.
Considering the list
of participants include Quentin Tarantino, the cast of Mad Men, David Bouley, Robert De Niro, Metallica, Ricky Gervais, Emeril
Lagasse, Bob Costas, Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Alex Atala, and David Chang, it is many ways up to the audience to decide
at what interview constitutes the most famous performance.
