Description

Join noted artists, writers and scholars in this series of conversations exploring form, process, and inspiration in literary and visual creation. Pairs will engage in dialogue about the overlaps and singularities of their respective practices, opening channels of thought across disciplines.
 
Distinguished scholars Mary Ann Caws (Comparative Literature, English, and French, the Graduate Center, CUNY) and Linda Nochlin (Art History, Institute of Fine Art, NYU) will discuss a life in the study of arts and letters. Pioneering thinkers in surrealist literature and feminist art history, they will speak of their own development as scholars, the practice of writing and research, and the role of interdisciplinary reflection in their own groundbreaking work.
