On Monday, October 29, the Cooper Union will host “A Radical Vision: Roy DeCarava’s The Sweet Flypaper of Life,” an evening of discussion and analysis in honor of the republication of Roy DeCarava’s book, The Sweet Flypaper of Life (First Print Press). The text, which consists of DeCarava’s photographs, accompanied by Langston Hughes’s writing, has been out of print for over 30 years and will be distributed by David Zwirner Books, D.A.P., and Thames & Hudson. DeCarava and Hughes reflect on their city — Harlem — through pictures and stories of ordinary people around them.
Cooper Union will host a panel moderated by Thelma Golden, director and chief curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, and featuring artists, critics, and scholars such as A.D. Coleman, Radiclani Clytus, Leslie Hewitt, and more. For anyone interested in photography, poetry, and the history of Harlem, will undoubtedly be an interesting conversation.
The event is free and open to the public, but guests are asked to RSVP here, though seating is first come, first serve, and an RSVP does not guarantee admission.
When: Monday, October 29, 6:30 pm–8:00pm
Where: The Great Hall, Foundation Building, Cooper Union (7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues, East Village, Manhattan)
