Clark Art: Talk by the New Yorker’s Hilton Als

Literature, Lectures, and Talks

December 8 | 5:30 pm  

On Thursday, December 8 at 5:30 pm, the Clark Art Institute’s Research and Academic Program hosts a talk by Hilton Als, art critic for The New Yorker and one of the 2022 recipients of the Clark Prize for Excellence in Arts Writing. Als’s talk, “Diane Arbus in Manhattan,” examines an element that rarely features in discussions of Diane Arbus’ work: the city itself. Als sees Manhattan, where Arbus grew up and raised her children, as central to the photographer’s exploration of its various citizens and formative for her interest in marginalization. Arbus knew that if she did not record these worlds, they would not get seen. The talk takes place in the Clark’s auditorium and is free and open to the public. A reception in the Manton Research Center Reading Room at 5 pm precedes the program.
