About Time, Vahram Muratyan in Conversation with Timothée Verrecchia

Acclaimed author of Paris versus New York, Vahram Muratyan will join us at Albertine to discuss his new book — the visual memoir About Time — with Timothée Verrecchia.

Inspired by Muratyan’s travels across four continents and illustrated in his signature splashy, collagist art, About Time explores our ideas about time and memory in a colorful, captivating way. From travel to technology, fashion to friendship, happiness to heartbreak, Muratyan’s illustrations capture how time touches every aspect of our lives. Time flies, or time crawls, and you can take it, break it, spend it, lose it, save it, or forget it. Time shapes our relationships, our memories, our hopes, and our dreams. And only with time can possibilities become reality. Warm, funny, chic, and as graphically pleasing as its predecessor, About Time is a meditation on and celebration of how we spend our lives.

In English. This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
