“Real American Places: Edward Weston and Leaves of Grass”

A new exhibition opening this fall considers a rich dialogue between two iconic figures in American culture: the renowned photographer Edward Weston (1886–1958) and poet Walt Whitman (1819–1892). The 25 photographs included in the exhibition illuminate an understudied chapter of Weston’s career. In 1941, the Limited Editions Book Club approached Weston to collaborate on a deluxe edition of Whitman’s poetry collection, Leaves of Grass. The publisher’s ambitious plan was to capture “the real American faces and the real American places” that defined Whitman’s epic work. More

Magnetic Fields: 50 Song Memoir

50 Song Memoir is the new album from songwriter Stephin Merritt’s beloved recording project, the Magnetic Fields. This personal album, containing fifty songs, one for each year of the artist's life, is to be released in early 2017 on Nonesuch Records. Each performance contains a separate program - the entire album will be performed in full over two nights. Unlike Stephin’s previous work, the lyrics on 50 Song Memoir are nonfiction, a mix of autobiography and documentary. There is one song per year for the fifty years since 1965. Musically the sound ranges as widely and adventurously as possible, within the context of lyrics-driven music. More
