An Evening with Fran Lebowitz: On Peter Hujar

“When people talk about me,” Peter Hujar once said of his posthumous reputation, “I want them to be whispering.” That will not happen tonight, as writer, humorist, and cultural commentator Fran Lebowitz reflects candidly on the trials and joys of her close friendship with the artist. Lebowitz was twenty-one, Hujar thirty-seven, when they met at a film screening in 1971… but let her tell the story. Lebowitz speaks with Joel Smith, Richard L. Menschel Curator and Department Head of Photography.
