Ian Maleney & Daniel Mendelsohn
Fri 23 Aug 14:15 - 15:15
Ways of Seeing
Two essayists explore the ways art defines the making of ourselves, can be a source of solace, and reflects the world around us. In his collection Minor Monuments, Irish writer and editor Ian Maleney maps his journey as an artist alongside his grandfather’s descent into Alzheimer's. Daniel Mendelsohn follows up his much-lauded An Odyssey with The Bad Boy of Athens; ranging from Homer to Knausgaard, he shows how art from across the ages shapes our contemporary lives.
