Buy a copy of Wrestlers or a $5 gift card in-store at the Strand's second floor registers or at the door to attend. This event will take place in the Art Department on the Strand's 2nd floor, accessible via the main store elevator or the stairs.

Carroll Dunham is no stranger to the NYC art scene and we're excited to host him for the launch of his latest book, Wrestlers.

This collection features four of his bodies of work: A Wrestling Place series—depicting two Herculean figures mid-tussle against a barren panorama; Self-Examination paintings—a wrestler’s intimately folded body represented within a tensely cropped picture plane; the Wrestler suite—individual portraits of the brawling protagonists standing in profile, facing away from the viewer and exposing scuffed, bruised backs against otherworldly blue backdrops; and The Golden Age­—scenes rendered in pencil on gessoed linen.

Join us in the second floor Art Department as Carroll sits down with Alexi Worth, the writer for this new collection.
