AGB BOOK & FILM CLUB: 15 FEBRUARY: THE LONELY CITY

Join with other Members and firends who like discussing books, films and art. The AGB Book & Film Club will continue to meet online for at least the first two events of 2021.

The February session will discuss The Lonely City: Adventures in the art of being alone. In this 2016 book, British writer Olivia Laing blends research, biography and memoir to reflect her time living alone in New York City after having been abruptly left by a partner. Her reflections on the isolation she felt during this time move into discussions of eight artists and the way in which loneliness permeated their work. The artists discussed are Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, David Wojnarowicz, Henry Darger, Klaus Nomi, Josh Harris and Zoe Leonard.

Register for the event and the online link will be sent to you the week prior to the event.
