Vile Days and Happy End
Vile Days and Happy End: Hard to Read and Cine-Situation with author Gary Indiana
Gary Indiana, bleeding heart author of contemporary malaise, joins host Fiona Alison Duncan and the Standard hotels for a night of readings, talk, and cinema.
For its first event of 2019, Hard to Read is celebrating the work and person of Gary Indiana, including the recent release of Vile Days, a collection of his 1985-1988 Village Voice art columns (edited by Bruce Hainley, for Semiotexte), as well as the re-releases of his novels Horse Crazy and Gone Tomorrow (Seven Stories Press).
After a reading and discussion of Indiana’s work in the Cactus Lounge, we’ll move to the Lobby, where Duncan and Indiana will host the hotel’s weekly Cine-Situation event, screening a film of Indiana’s choosing: Michael Haneke’s 2017 Happy End, starring Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant.
7.00pm Readings + discussion
