Author Talk: Judith Stein

Wed, January 18, 2017 6:30 P.M.
Philadelphia City Institute

Author Judith Stein will discuss her book Eye of the Sixties: Richard Bellamy and the Transformation of Modern Art, a biography of the little-known Chinese American art dealer who launched the careers of many of the best-known artists of his time. Based on decades of research, Eye of the Sixties recovers the lost history of a beatnik who turned his back on the art market (Farrar Straus and Giroux, 2016).

Judith E. Stein is a writer and curator specializing in postwar American art. For the Pennsylvania Academy of the Arts she curated I Tell My Heart, The Art of Horace Pippin, and Red Grooms, A Retrospective. A former arts reviewer for NPR’s Fresh Air, she has written for Art in America and numerous museum publications. She is the recipient of a Pew Fellowship in the Arts in literary nonfiction and a Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant.

Books will be available for purchase after the talk. This program is co-sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and the Philadelphia City Institute Library. It will be held in the meeting room on the library’s lower level and we regret there is no elevator. Please call 215-685-6621 with questions.
