Ben Lerner Craft of Fiction—Fiction as Curation

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Tuesday


In this talk, we’ll consider how prose can absorb other media—poetry, visual art, etc.—as a method both of critique and characterization. How can we think of writing fiction as a curatorial art?

Ben Lerner has received fellowships from the Fulbright, Guggenheim, and Mac Arthur Foundations, among many other honors.
