NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan's Glass House will kick off its Conversations in Context on Thursday with guest speakers Murray Moss and Francois de Menil.

The talk will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and includes a tour of the Glass House. Tickets cost $150 per person, $100 of which is tax deductible.  

Moss is an American design entrepreneur and founder of the design art company Moss. He has introduced new thinking, new contexts, new technologies and new materials to the public for the past 17 years, the Glass House said in a statement. Moss’s store has often been compared to a museum. In February, Moss opened Moss Bureau, an advisory agency providing a large number of services to the sector.

De Menil is principal and founder of FdM:Arch, an internationally acclaimed architecture firm. He grew up in one of the first International Style structures built in Texas, a mid-century residence designed by Philip Johnson in 1948, a one-story brick long and low-slung house. 

Conversations in Context invites leaders from creative fields to reflect on the site's past, present and future, and to contribute their perspectives on the Glass House and its significance to contemporary debates.

Other conversation hosts will be Peter Brant, Elizabeth Diller, Peter Eisenman and Cynthia Davidson, Annabelle Selldorf, Bjarke Ingels and James Welling as the series continues through the year. 

Conversations in Context tickets may be purchased online or via phone at 866-811-4111. Space is limited.
