overview

Parker Posey, Dan Stevens, Heather Burns, Denis O'Hare, and Rita Wolf perform funny, passionate, and surprising tales about art and those who make it. 

The unique and eclectic mix of readings includes colorful excerpts from the new edition of The Diaries of Andy Warhol; a coming- of- age story by William Boyd (from the new Everyman's Pocket Classics collection Stories of Art and Artists); a first-person fictional account by a Downtown minimalist artist wrestling with her work; Sheila Heti's vibrant tale of a mermaid in a jar; new, commissioned flash fiction by Helen Phillips and Dolan Morgan, written in response to Ed Ruscha's text-based painting currently on view at the High Line; and special guests Maria Popova from BrainPickings.org and artist and filmmaker Laurie Simmons, (The Love Doll; Walking, Talking, Lying; and the upcoming Jewish Museum exhibition How We See) shares her artwork inspired by Heti's story.

Hosted by Matthew Love.
