In Adam Moss’s new book The Work of Art, the former editor of New York magazine asks “What is the work of art?” Weaving conversations with some of the most accomplished artists of our time together with the journal entries, napkin doodles, and sketches that were their tools, Moss traces the tortuous paths and artist decisions that led to the making of transcendent novels, paintings, movies, songs, jokes, and more.

Organized and hosted by author and UCLA professor Mona Simpson. Copresented by UCLA Department of English.
