Facing Arbus: A Conversation

In conjunction with the exhibition Diane Arbus: Family Albums

Followed by a viewing of Diane Arbus: Family Albums at the Grey Art Gallery

Suddenly, again, she is everywhere—exhibitions on both coasts; her haunting, beguiling, unsettling imagery staring out, seemingly, from the pages of every journal—yet it is as if Diane Arbus had never left, so deeply has her vision bored its way into our own. On a cold winter’s eve, essayists Francine Prose and Arthur Lubow, photographer Tina Barney, and painter Alex Katz will endeavor to stare back. Moderated by Lawrence Weschler, director of the New York Institute for the Humanities.

Organized by the New York Institute for the Humanities and co-sponsored by the Grey Art Gallery.
