Tending toward 50: A History of Chelsea Review, featuring author portraits by Gerard Malanga
Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
Since its establishment in 1958 as Chelsea Review, the literary journal has served as an important voice for original poetry, fiction, and works in translation. As the 50th anniversary of Chelsea approaches, an exhibition will highlight the evolution of the journal. Accompanying the archival items on display will be a group of photographic portraits of Chelsea contributors by Gerard Malanga, acclaimed poet and filmmaker. [ca. 60 items]
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
