Author Talk: Douglas Crimp

November 3, 2016
Fullerton Hall
Free ticket required with museum admission

Art historian Douglas Crimp reads from his recent memoir Before Pictures, which tells the story of Crimp’s formative experiences as a young gay man and art critic in New York City from the late 1960s through the 70s. The details of his life are interwoven with the rich history of New York, producing a vivid portrait of both the critic and his adopted city.  At the same time, it offers a deeply personal and engaging point of entry into important issues in contemporary art. Following the reading, Crimp is joined in conversation by artist and writer Gregg Bordowitz.
