July 25 features Frieze editor Andrew Durbin, who will read excerpts of his novel MacArthur Park (Nightboats, 2017) and discuss experimental, novelistic approaches to art writing pioneered by Lynne Tillman and Eileen Myles.

Andrew Durbin is senior editor of frieze, based in New York, USA. He is the author of Mature Themes (2014) and MacArthur Park (2017), both published by Nightboat Books.
Burnaway is an Atlanta-based 501(c)(3) non-profit magazine that publishes contemporary art and criticism from the American South. Since 2008, the magazine has brought vital critical dialogue and artist resources to one of the most politically polarized, historically fraught, ecologically threatened, and economically disadvantaged parts of the United States. Published online daily and in print annually, Burnaway provides a range of frank and fresh perspectives on art and life in the South today.
