Professor Alexander Nemerov, Chair of Stanford University’s Art & Art History Department, will lecture on Diane Arbus’s photographs taken at mental asylums between 1969 and 1971, exploring the relation of these extraordinary pictures to the poems of Arbus’s brother, the poet Howard Nemerov. Professor Alexander Nemerov, the son of Howard and the nephew of Diane, will also speak on how he feels connected to the Untitled photographs and to his father’s poetry. This lecture is based on Professor Nemerov’s recently published book entitled: Silent Dialogues: Diane Arbus & Howard Nemerov (Fraenkel Gallery, 2015).
