James D. Balestrieri: How Do You Write A Book About An Artist?

“Hulings was a working artist whose subject was work.”


In the third part of our Haverford College series, Hulings Estate writer in residence James D. Balestrieri shares his research for the new Clark Hulings book. Jim discusses his thematic approach to Hulings’ life and work, going beyond a traditional biography or monograph, and honoring the web of influences, travels, and source materials—and the myriad of skilled choices Hulings made to create a timeless body of work.

Many thanks again to Clark Hulings Foundation Advisory Board Member & Haverford College Alumni Association Member Mitchell Cohn for co-producing this event with us! Additional thanks to Catherine Toia at Haverford and video editor Rachan Chindarsi.
