Women in the Arts Lecture Series: Get the Picture with Bianca Bosker

May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In Conversation with Bianca Bosker, author of NYT bestseller Get The Picture: A Mind-Bending Journey Among the Inspired Artists and Obsessive Art Fiends Who Taught Me How to See

In her latest journalistic endeavor, Bosker immerses herself in the nerve center of the art world and the people who live for it: gallerists, collectors, curators, and, of course, artists themselves—the kind who work multiple jobs to afford their studios while scrabbling to get eyes on their art. As she stretches canvases until her fingers blister, talks her way into A-list parties full of billionaire collectors, sells art as a gallerist, has her face sat on by a nearly-naked performance artist, and forces herself to stare at a single sculpture for hours on end while working as a museum security guard, she discovers not only the inner workings of the art machine but also a more expansive way of living.
