Koestenbaum will be reading his provocative essay “My 1980s,” from his new book, My 1980s & Other Essays. He will also read other selections of his prose and poetry that share affinities with the spirit and method of Peter Halley’s paintings. Koestenbaum is a poet, critic, and artist who has published over a dozen books, on such subjects as hotels, Harpo Marx, humiliation, Jackie Onassis, opera, and Andy Warhol.
