Art historian Pamela M. Lee and artist Anne Walsh continue their ongoing dialogue about feminism, fairy tales, capitalism, and contemporary art as tackled in their latest books. Lee’s The Glen Park Library is both homage to the Bay Area and excoriation of the ethos of Silicon Valley, arguing that the notion of “disruptive” technology has radically affected our relationship to aesthetics, reading, history, and truth. Hello Leonora, Soy Anne Walsh evidences a more autobiographical approach, as Walsh chronicles her multi-disciplinary artistic dialogue with Leonora Carrington and her best-known book The Hearing Trumpet. Lee and Walsh discuss narratives in fragments, experimentation in writing, and the contemporary art world.
