Join Jarrett Earnest and art historian Kenneth Silver for a conversation celebrating the publication of “The Young and Evil: Queer Modernism in New York, 1930–1955.” Originally presented at The David Zwirner Gallery in 2019, Jerry Saltz lauded it as “one of the most reactionary yet radical visions of art.” It tells the story of a group of modernist artists active during the early 20th century, when homosexuality was as problematic for American culture as figurative painting was for modernist artists and writers.

Earnest and Silver will discuss the evolution of queer representation and consider strategies for writing, thinking and exhibiting alternative art histories.
