A Form Without a Form: Hilton Als in Conversation with Mary Wang

Wednesday, September 23, 2020⋅

Free and open to the public.

Hilton Als once called the essay “a form without a form”—a description equally applicable to his work as a staff writer and theater critic for the New Yorker, but also to his work as a curator. For this virtual studio visit, writer and editor Mary Wang will use clips from films foundational to Als’s practice to discuss the formal transgressions in his work and how such methods can help bring muddled presents into shape. This conversation is also the inaugural live edition of Miscellaneous Files, an interview series published by Guernica magazine.
