Circles of Friendship: Freilicher and Wilson

Jane Freilicher and Jane Wilson, Water Mill, New York, July 1962. Photograph by John Jonas Gruen.

In circles of friendship and intimacy, Jane Freilicher and Jane Wilson were surrounded by a luminous galaxy of friends—poets, painters, photographers, and filmmakers among them—who celebrated the two in an ongoing aesthetic dialogue with their work.

Join us for this special multi-media event featuring the first screening in more than 60 years of John Latouche and Harrison Starr's 1952 film Presenting Jane, along with a live reading of the script written by poet James Schuyler; a screening of Andy Warhol's 1964 Screen Test of Jane Wilson; and a conversation between the Museum's Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator Alicia Longwell and writer Sam Swasey. This program runs in conjunction with the special exhibition Jane Freilicher and Jane Wilson: Seen and Unseen.

Following the program, John Gruen will sign copies of his most recent title, Jane Wilson: Photographs by John Jonas Gruen, created in collaboration with Sam Swasey. The book can be purchased in the Museum Shop prior to the signing.
