The Schwab Room

Overview

Co-organized with Margaret Tedesco.

The Stein family's Saturday salons in their Paris apartments were the crucible of avant-garde art and writing of the period. In keeping with the spirit of those informal gatherings, our guests — artists, writers, filmmakers, performers, and others — will entertain us with their personal recollections of Bay Area avant-garde histories.
