On the occasion of the exhibition Natalie Frank: The Brothers Grimm, at the Drawing Center, Frank joins Claire Gilman, curator at the Drawing Center, renowned art historian Linda Nochlin, and fairy tale expert Jack Zipes for a panel discussion about fairy tales, sexuality, feminism, and Frank's recent work. The conversation will be followed by readings of select Grimm's tales. Readers include Pulitzer Prize–winning author Michael Cunningham, legendary choreographer Bill T. Jones, and acclaimed essayist and feminist sage Ariel Levy. Following 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 book features an introduction by Zipes and essays by Gilman and Nochlin, as well as a conversation between the artist and theater director Julie Taymor.
