James Frey: Il Divino Bambino

John McWhinnie @ Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce a new exhibition by James Frey, Il Divino Bambino. Il Divino Bambino is an exhibition of text based artwork taken from James Frey's latest mansucript of the same name. Frey's tale is a contemporary riff on Dante's Divine Comedy and it offers up a story of his raucous trip through Heaven, Hell and Purgatory with a modern Virgil as a guide. For the exhibition, Frey has transformed his manuscript into a series of artworks: They are equal parts literary manuscript and visual artwork, things to be hung on a wall and read. With Il Divino Bambino, Frey once again gives us a glimpse of his own version of literary and artistic medicine, mixed and mashed-up in the subterranean basement of his wild imagination, a place where truth is stranger than fiction and fiction is a paler version of the truth. If you have ever wanted to see Frey in hell, wander through purgatorial malaise, or bask in the allurements of heaven, you need not go any further than Il Divino Bambino. An opening reception for the author will be held on Wednesday, October 13th, 2010, from 6 to 8 p.m. More details to follow.
