MARCH 14th

Patrick James Dunagan, author of Post-Apollo’s “There Are People Who Say That Painters Shouldn’t Talk : A GUSTONBOOK” will introduce a special screening of a documentary honoring the life and work of painter Philip Guston:

Clark Coolidge + Bill Berkson, in dialogue

Monday March 14th, 7:00 pm
Balboa Theatre, 3630 Balboa Street, San Francisco

Poets Clark Coolidge and Bill Berkson will discuss the life, work and influence of one of the most intellectually adventurous and poetically gifted of modern painters, in light of the newly published Collected Writings, Lectures and Conversations of Philip Guston (UC Press). Over the course of his life, Guston’s wide reading in literature and philosophy ever deepened his commitment to his art — from his early Abstract Expressionist paintings to his later gritty, intense figurative works.

This event is presented by Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization housed at Bird & Beckett Books and Records in San Francisco.

$10 admission.
