Fall Line Press
Lecture by Frederick Gross: Diane Arbus’ 1960s: Auguries of Experience
Friday, May 4, 2012, reception at 6:00, lecture at 7:00 pm

“Frederick Gross, an art history professor at SCAD-Savannah, will discuss his research on Diane Arbus’s work focusing on the moment in which it was produced and first viewed to reveal its broader significance for analyzing and mapping the culture of the 1960s.

By shifting critical attention from the myths of Arbus’s biography to the mythmaking of her art, this book gives us a new, informed appreciation of one of the twentieth century’s most important photographers and a better understanding of the world in which she worked.

Diane Arbus’s 1960s: Auguries of Experience was published by the University of Minnesota Press in February and will be available for purchase at the Fall Line Bookstore. Join us for drinks at 6 PM, with a formal lecture following at 7 PM.”
