Glittering Images

Nov 23, 2012

Camille Paglia is one of todays most acknowledged cultural critics, author of provocative books such as Sexual Personae and Break, Blow, Burn, is now out with her assessment of art from earlier times right up to Star Wars. In Glittering Images, she selects more than two dozen images and provides some background on the author and the work, but also places it in within its historical context. It’s a fascinating walk through time using arts as the guideposts, and she’s on the phone to discuss this journey with Mark Perzel.
