Edmund de Waal and Christine Kondoleon on Cy Twombly

Friday, October 4, 2019, 3pm
Regent’s Park, London
frieze.com

As part of the Frieze Masters Talks program, Edmund de Waal will discuss the work of Cy Twombly with Christine Kondoleon of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. De Waal has a particular affinity for Twombly’s ability to create works that are simultaneously personal and mythological, allowing narrative, language, and inner visions to erupt from his intimate, abstract notations. To attend the free event, register at the Frieze Masters auditorium desk the day of the talk.

Upcoming Publication

Edmund de Waal in
Frick Diptychs

Edmund de Waal is one of the first participants in Frick Diptychs, a new series of books to be published by the Frick. Each book will illuminate a single work from the museum’s collection by juxtaposing an essay by a curator with a text from a contemporary cultural figure. De Waal and Charlotte Vignon will each contribute an essay about a pair of porcelain and bronze candlesticks by the eighteenth-century French metalworker Pierre Gouthière.
