POWER/CULTURE Part One: The Power of the Critic
David Zwirner Books and The New York Review of Books are pleased to announce POWER/CULTURE, a four-part series of public talks that will bring together leading writers, artists, and thinkers to explore the role of power within the cultural sphere. The talks will examine the shifting power of the critic, the public, the patron, and the artist, both historically and within today’s cultural landscape. Hosted by Lucas Zwirner, head of content at David Zwirner, and Daniel Mendelsohn, editor-at-large of The New York Review of Books, the talks will take place at David Zwirner’s New York galleries.
The series will launch with the talk “The Power of the Critic,” a conversation about the evolving role of critics, publications, and media in making taste, careers, and canons. That discussion will take place on Monday, September 23, and will feature Manohla Dargis (co-chief film critic for The New York Times), Robert Gottlieb (former editor of The New Yorker and former editor-in-chief of Simon & Schuster and Knopf), Antwaun Sargent (independent writer and critic), and Jillian Steinhauer (art critic for The New York Times), and will be moderated by Daniel Mendelsohn.
Doors open at 6pm. The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to NYRB@davidzwirner.com is required.
