Date: Thursday, 3 March 2011, 7:30–8:30 pm
Location: Exploratorium, McBean Theater, 3601 Lyon Street, San Francisco (map and directions here)
Admission $15. Tickets only available at the door (limited seats; showing up early is recommended)

For its first-ever program in San Francisco, Cabinet is pleased to present a "bunk bed conversation" at the Exploratorium as part of the museum's "After Dark" program.

A regular series initiated by Cabinet, the bunk bed conversations are a form of intellectual theater that explores the public potential of this most private, archaic, and companionable of American scenes. For this installment, pyjama-clad writers D. Graham Burnett and Jeff Dolven will be perched on the top and bottom bunks, respectively, to consider the relationship between sleep, knowledge, and art.

For a long time, we used to go to bed early. On March third, won't you stay up and talk with us?

For a list of all the bunk bed conversations, as well as audio and images from the other installments, see here.
