The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center at The Brooklyn Museum will host an evening with Natalie Frank and guests. A panel discussion about fairy tales, sexuality, Feminism, and Frank’s recent work will feature the artist, Drawing Center Curator Claire Gilman, renowned art historian Linda Nochlin, and fairy tale expert Jack Zipes. Readings of select Grimm’s tales by Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham, legendary choreographer Bill T. Jones, and acclaimed essayist and feminist sage Ariel Levy will follow.
After the program, the artist will be on-hand to sign copies of her new book Tales of the Brothers Grimm, published by Damiani and distributed by DAP. The 270-page fully illustrated hardcover book contains thirty-six Grimm’s tales selected and pictorially reinterpreted by the artist as well as texts by Zipes, Nochlin, and Gilman and a conversation between Frank and director Julie Taymore.
This event is in conjunction with Natalie Frank: The Brother's Grimm.
Artists in Residence
Ryan and Trevor Oakes
The Drawing Center has commissioned artists Ryan and Trevor Oakes to use the exhibition Portraits from the École des Beaux-Arts Paris as a platform to further explore the genre of portraiture. For eight consecutive Thursdays during May 7–June 25th, 2015 from 12–8 PM, the artists will be in residence in our Main Gallery. Using their unique drawing techniques, they will create a group “portrait” of our space and of visitors to our gallery. One can request an hour-long reservation for a portrait sitting by emailing email@example.com.
