Amy Tan at the Brainwave series
You can’t recall what you had for breakfast, but memory champion Nelson Dellis once memorized the order of a card deck—while climbing Mount Everest. He’ll turn the Rubin into a “memory palace,” an ancient mnemonic device, teaching people how to remember 80-something facts by associating them with a part of the building. Hey, the technique worked for the ancient Greeks. Part of the Rubin Museum of Art's annual “Brainwave” series.
