Frieze Talks 2018

The program takes a literary turn with a focus on some of today’s most searching writers

Drawing upon the recent outpouring of contemporary fiction, curators Tom Eccles and Amy Zion have invited writers, poets and artists into discussions that challenge sound-bite and tweet-driven narratives, with profound and often humorous investigations into today’s American landscapes.

Talks are free to attend for all fair visitors with admission ticket.

Taking place Friday through Sunday, Frieze Talks 2018 pairs artists with authors to stimulate unique encounters between powerful cultural voices. The program includes:

Friday, May 4

12pm: Yuri Herrera (author of Signs Preceding the End of the World, The Transmigration of Bodies) in conversation with artists Carlos Amorales and Abraham Cruzvillegas

3pm: Author Ottessa Moshfegh (Eileen, Homesick for Another World) in conversation with writer Patty Yumi Cottrell (Sorry to Disrupt the Peace)

Saturday, May 5

12pm: Fred Moten (Professor in the Department of Performance Studies, NYU) in conversation with Sondra Perry (artist)

3pm: Novelist Kaitlyn Greenidge (We love you Charlie Freeman) in conversation with historian Kerri Greenidge and moderated by Rujeko Hockley (Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art)

Sunday, May 6

12pm: Author Elif Batuman (The Idiot, The Possessed) in conversation with Negar Azimi (writer, editor Bidoun)
