Helen Molesworth in Conversation with Jonathan Lethem


To celebrate the opening of One Day at a Time: Manny Farber and Termite Art, renowned writer Jonathan Lethem joins exhibition curator Helen Molesworth to discuss Farber’s notion of “termite art”—an exploration of the problems and pleasures of the everyday—as it appears within fine art, cinema, writing, and life. Lethem is a contributor to Termite Deluxe: Manny Farber Writings and Paintings, a forthcoming volume exploring Farber’s life and work.
