Alexander Nemerov is the nephew of Diane Arbus - son of her brother, the acclaimed poet Howard Nemerov and Professor of Art and American Studies at Yale University. In a deeply personal account he discusses the sibling's close relationship as children and their very different artistic aims. Nemerov reveals the hidden kinship between Arbus’s photography and his father’s poetry. Professor Nemerov will take part in a question and answer session moderated by John Fagg, Lecturer in American Literature in the American and Canadian Studies Department at The University of Nottingham.
Professor Nemerov is the recipient of the Highfield Fellowship at the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Advanced Studies.
