My Perfect Body: Douglas Crimp and Before Pictures Reading

In conjunction with the exhibition Andy Warhol: My Perfect Body, Douglas Crimp reads from his 2016 memoir Before Pictures, which tells the story of Crimp’s life as a young gay man and art critic in New York City during the late 1960s through the turbulent 1970s. The details of his professional and personal life are interwoven in this history of New York City at that time, producing a vivid portrait of both the critic and his adopted city.

Following the reading, Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art, leads a Q&A focusing on the points of intersection between Crimp’s latest book, research, and the themes of the exhibition, Andy Warhol: My Perfect Body. A book signing in The Warhol Store follows the event.

My Perfect Body: Douglas Crimp and Before Pictures Reading will be held on Thursday, December 8, starting at 7:00 pm in The Warhol Theater of The Andy Warhol Museum. For more information, visit the My Perfect Body: Douglas Crimp event page.
