This timely gathering produced by the Brooklyn Rail, in collaboration with The Willem de Kooning Foundation, marks the 25th anniversary of de Kooning’s passing. Join us for a conversation and festive celebration of the artist’s remarkable life and work, with an opening remark by the Foundation’s Executive Director Amy Schichtel, and personal reflections by renowned curator John Elderfield. We conclude with a poetry reading by Erica Hunt.

The Rail has a tradition of ending our conversations with a poem, and we’re fortunate to have Erica Hunt reading.
❤️ 🌈 We'd like to thank the The Terra Foundation for making these daily conversations possible, and for their support of our growing archive.
