Center for Coastal Studies Provincetown

Wednesday, January 25 A Napi’s Lecture with acclaimed writer, film maker, and curator Philip Hoare. A regular visitor to Provincetown since 2001, Hoare is known for his prize-winning book Leviathan or, The Whale; the BBC film The Hunt for Moby Dick; and as co-creator of the Moby Dick Big Read.

In his new book Albert & The Whale, Hoare sets out to discover why the work of 15th century artist Albert Dürer endures. Along the way, he encounters medieval alchemists and modernist poets, eccentric emperors and enigmatic stars. Throughout the book, Albert & The Whale asks ‘does art have the power to save us?’ 7 pm at the Center’s offices and lab at 5 Holway Avenue in Provincetown and virtually on Zoom – CoastalStudies.org
