READING DOMINIC EICHLER
FRIDAY, 02 SEPTEMBER, 7 PM
Dominic Eichler will read excerpts from the manuscript of his nonfiction book "Changing the Subject"-a work in progress that includes twenty years of art writing, autobiographical notes, and sections on the life of an art writer and the now. In the LIFE TIME catalog, his essay "The Cultural History of the Rainbow," which explores gayness in the work of Ugo Rondinone, is part of a long conversation in which he reflects on progressive change in contemporary art.
