Hilton Als on Joan Didion
Museum Confidential: Season 7, Episode 5.
Well before Joan Didion's death in December of 2021, the noted writer and New Yorker Magazine contributor Hilton Als was working on curating a Didion-focused show for the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. But how could one exhibition depict Didion's big, far-flung, influential, uniquely American life? This episode of MC explores that question and others; Als is our guest. "Joan Didion: What She Means" is on view at the Hammer through February 19, 2023.
