Working Through Influence: 

A Conversation with Artist Angel Otero


The Dedalus Foundation

25 East 21st Street, Floor 4


In 1973, literary critic Harold Bloom published The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry. His central thesis was that poets are both hindered and encouraged in their creative process by the ambiguous relationship they necessarily maintain with precursor poets. A similarly fraught and productive relationship exists between visual artists and their own forerunners. Painter Angel Otero and critic-curator Christian Viveros-Fauné examine both the anxiety and advantages of influence in a freewheeling conversation that centers on Otero's relationship with various generations of artists as well as on the Puerto Rican painter's exhibition "Angel Otero: Elegies," currently on view at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
