Radicals and Rogues: The Women Who Made New York Modern Book Talk

Meet trailblazing women of 20th-century NYC in a virtual book talk with Lottie Whalen, author of Radicals and Rogues: The Women Who Made New York Modern!

  • Take a tour of New York’s 1910s salons and bohemian hangouts, from radical cafes in Greenwich Village to soirées at the upmarket apartment of the Stettheimer sisters
  • Meet the tastemakers, curators, artists and poets at the forefront of the city’s early avant-garde scene, such as Beatrice Wood, Mina Loy, and Clara Tice
  • Hear about how women put modern art on New York’s map, from contributing to the groundbreaking 1913 Armory Show to opening galleries like the Whitney and the Madison Art Gallery

About the event:

In this live, virtual talk, Lottie Whalen will discuss her new book, Radicals and Rogues: the Women Who Made New York Modern, the story of a group of women whose experiments in art and life set the tone for the rise of New York as the twentieth century’s capital of modern culture. Across the 1910s and ’20s, through provocative creative acts, shocking fashion, political activism and dynamic social networks, these women reimagined modern life and fought for the chance to realize their visions.
