Join us high atop Los Angeles for a Sunday afternoon at The Getty Research Institute for drinks & hors d'oeuvres and readings by Black Clock contributors Aimee Bender, Geoff Nicholson, Susan Straight and David Ulin.
Singular, idiosyncratic and a little mysterious, Black Clock is one of America’s leading literary journals. Since its inception in 2004, the publication has featured work (by Don DeLillo, Richard Powers, Joanna Scott, Jonathan Lethem, Rick Moody, Lynne Tillman, Samuel R. Delany, Joseph McElroy, Shelley Jackson, Brian Evenson, David Foster Wallace, William T. Vollmann and many others) that has gone on to be anthologized in best-of-the-year collections, nominated for O. Henry and Pushcart Prizes, and win National Book Awards. Black Clock is also regarded as among the country’s most beautifully designed magazines. Edited by Steve Erickson, it’s published semi-annually by the California Institute of the Arts in association with the MFA Writing Program.
The Getty Research Institute is dedicated to furthering knowledge and advancing understanding of the visual arts and their various histories through its expertise, active collecting program, public programs, institutional collaborations, exhibitions, publications, digital services, and residential scholars programs. Its Research Library and Special Collections of rare materials and digital resources serve an international community of scholars and the interested public. The Institute's activities and scholarly resources guide and sustain each other and together provide a unique environment for research, critical inquiry, and scholarly exchange.
