Interviews, Pt. 1

Hosts Max Blagg and Glenn O'Brien impersonated a studio full of ethereal guests. They began by reconvening a 1959 era panel on modern art featuring Norman Bluhm, Mike Goldberg, Frank O'Hara and Elaine deKooning (from the magazine It Is), whose views on art and the art world seem highly pertinent 45 years later. Then gorgeous Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector interviewed Pablo Neruda, after which Jack Kerouac drunkenly replied to questions from Ted Berrigan and Aram Saroyan (op.cit. Paris Review, summer 1968 issue). All in all a very loquacious program.


Bald Ego Online


The late arts writer Glenn O'Brien and poet Max Blagg hosted the Bald Ego Online series from 2005-2006, featuring Duncan Hannah, Ron Padgett, Anna Akhmatova, Donald Barthelme, an Anthology of New York Poets, and more. 
After O'Brien passed away in 2017, Clocktower re-introduced the series in remembrance of the writer's life in the New York art scene. He will be sorely missed.
