Francine Prose, Michael Cunningham, and Doon Arbus discuss how Diane Arbus’s precise use of language illuminates the perception of her pictures. The evening begins with a screening of A Slide Show and Talk by Diane Arbus, a 40-minute film compiled and edited by Neil Selkirk, Doon Arbus, and Adam Shott from an original recording of a 1970 slide presentation in which the artist speaks about photography, using her own work and other photographs, snapshots, and clippings from her collection. A reading from the book Diane Arbus: A Chronology follows.
Please note that there will be no late seating for this program.
