New Yorker article ROAD SHOW: The journey of Robert Frank’s “The Americans”

Anthony Lane wrote an interesting article on the exhibition “Looking In: Robert Frank’s The Americans “(9/14/09), which opens at the Metropolitan Museum on September 22nd.

There are many public events in conjunction with this important exhibition.  I previously mentioned the evening of October 9th when Mr. Frank will hold a public conversation with the exhibition curators.  There is a panel discussion on October 4th, free with museum entrance:

Robert Frank, Jack Kerouac, and Avant-garde Visual Culture of the Late 1950s—A Panel Discussion
Jeff L. Rosenheim, curator, Department of Photographs, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, moderates a panel with Luc Sante, writer and critic, and author of Lowlife: Lures and Snares of Old New York (1991); and Barney Rosset, legendary former owner of Grove Press and founder of Evergreen Review. Known for printing such censored classics as D. H.
