  • Reading Salon:
    David Foster Wallace and
    W.H. Auden
  • 28 August 2014, 7.00pm
  • FPG Project Space

The Reading Salon meets in the FPG Project Space for informal discussion, encouraging both a critical engagement with contemporary art and an open space for debate and learning. Sessions are led by Sophie Sleigh-Johnson.

To coincide with Ian Kiaer's exhibition 'Tooth House', the group will be looking at a number of texts chosen by the artist over two sessions. For the first session we will be discussing David Foster Wallace’s short story ‘Luckily the Account Representative Knew CPR’ from Girl With Curious Hair, alongside W.H. Auden’s poem Musée des Beaux Arts.
