Join us for a screening of A Slide Show and Talk by Diane Arbus, a unique opportunity to hear the artist speaking about her own work, and about other photographs, snapshots, and clippings from her collection. This 40-minute film, based on an original recording of a 1970 slide presentation, was compiled and edited by Neil Selkirk, Doon Arbus, and Adam Shott.

Preceded by Who Is Marvin Israel?, a documentary by Selkirk on the life and work of the enigmatic Marvin Israel, artist, designer, art director, and teacher. Israel's influence on Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, and Lee Friedlander, among others, is explored in the words of those who knew him.
