Pulp Uncovered: How Pulp Fiction Magazines Changed America
March 14, 2007 to May 31, 2007
Carriage House Gallery, 47 Power Street
Cheap pulp fiction magazines of the early 1900s defied social taboos against violence, sex, and bad taste. Condemned by moralists and scorned by the elite, pulp stories flaunted violence, reveled in promiscuous sex, and stereotyped just about everyone. "Pulp Uncovered" is an interdisciplinary arts festival celebrating pulp fiction magazines from the 1920s–40s. The festival includes a museum exhibit at the John Nicholas Brown Center, a film pulp fiction festival, and community events such as walking tours, lectures, panel discussions, and art talks.
