For this talk by Stuart Bailey , as part of STEINBERG, SAUL. THE NEW YORKER. NEW YORK, 1945–2000. (HAROLD, WILLIAM, ROBERT, TINA, DAVID, EDS.) exhibition, the leading subjects will be Saul Steinberg’s bloodless relatives: The New Yorker and J.D. Salinger.
Stuart Bailey will keep both institutions, Salinger and The New Yorker, in mind and draw attention, at first piecemeal and then pointblank, to 1) the precarious relationship between literary medium and romantic value, 2) the nature of a design deposited by so many different people, and 3) how cantankerous attitude becomes form.
July 3, 7pm
