The veneer of childhood, memory & pop culture are pulled back in this memory of 60s hippie communes.
Acclaimed journalist Kristine McKenna leads a discussion around Hayward’s poignant memoir, which chronicles the author’s experiences growing up on hippie communes in the 1960s, and connects it to the works on view. Both Pensato’s painting and Hayward’s prose peel back the colorful veneer of childhood, memory, and pop culture, to reveal the dark undercurrents roiling beneath the surface.
