After the overwhelming response to the previous screening, Aperture and the School of Visual Arts present: A Slide Show and Talk by Diane Arbus  and a screening of Who is Marvin Israel? . Read the article by Hilton Als titled Arbus Speaks from The New Yorker’s Book Bench column.
Who is Marvin Israel?  is a short documentary on the life and work of the enigmatic Marvin Israel (1924–1984), 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. Directed by Neil Selkirk.
The Slide Show and Talk by Diane Arbus is an original audio recording of a 1970 slide presentation by Diane Arbus in which she speaks about photography using her own work and other photographs, snapshots and clippings from her collection. Compiled and edited by Neil Selkirk, Doon Arbus, and Adam Shott.
This program coincides with the release of Diane Arbus: A Chronology and newly reissued Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph and Untitled: Diane Arbus on the fortieth anniversary of the original publication.
