In conjunction with CHARLATAN AND ULTIMATELY A BORING MAN—the Tony Lewis exhibition at Blum & Poe that takes as its point of focus the 1965 Cambridge University debate between James Baldwin and William F. Buckley, Jr.—Lewis will join Hamza Walker for a talk at the gallery.
Join Glenn Ligon and Hamza Walker for a conversation at Regen Projects, where Ligon’s show UNTITLED (AMERICA)/DEBRIS FIELD/SYNECDOCHE/NOTES FOR A POEM ON THE THIRD WORLD will be up through Sunday.
The exhibition includes the large neon Notes for a Poem on the Third World, which is based on a tracing of the artist’s hands, and the first in a series of works inspired by an unrealized film project by Pier Paolo Pasolini.
