Providence Arts Club

120 years ago, a group of artists formed the Providence Arts Club.

Providence – Because of a lack of exhibition space and artist gathering places in Providence, a group of artists and collectors formed an art club in the city.

While that sounds as something that could happen in 2002, this occurred 120 years ago when the Providence Art Club was formed. The club, which is often compared with its contemporary AS220, now has some 700 members and changes its gallery exhibits every two weeks.

Cloud Nine

Matthew Boston as Edward, Angela Brazil as Victoria and Amy Van Nostrand as Lin.

Today, a liberal prime minister, Tony Blair, is in charge of the country and the progressive ideals championed by playwright Caryl Churchill look somewhat tweedy. The sexual revolution has long come and gone.

Castaways

Geoffrey O'Brien's new book charts the terrain for "Castaways of the Image Planet."

Boston, MA –

Twenty years ago, the stately "New York Review of Books" didn't deign to cover much pop culture, aside from analytic examinations of boxing (via Joyce Carol Oates) or the peculiar ruminations of John Updike on his crushes for such movie stars as Doris Day. The exceptions prove the rule: Joan Didion got a free pass on pop subjects, but that was because she turned in rigorous pieces on cultural politics.
