Francine Prose, Michael Cunningham, and Doon Arbus on Diane Arbus
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.
