Jane Campion spoke with BOMB about doomed love in 1990, and her critically acclaimed new film ‘Bright Star‘ (Sept. 18) continues the theme. The New Yorker Festival‘s “Shouts & Murmurs Live” (Oct. 16-18) will feature Noah Baumbach and a performance by Steve Earle amongst many others. Visitors to Whitney’s Biennial in Greenpoint, featuring Kara Walker, found this instead of her artwork. The latest Bookforum reviews the new novels from Jonathan Lethem, Richard Powers and Padgett Powell.

Current and forthcoming exhibitions featuring BOMB interviewees include a major Anish Kapoor show (Sept. 26) at the Royal Academy in London (watch a video of Kapoor’s ‘Shooting Into the Corner’, featured in the exhibition), and you can catch Vera Lutter in New York (until Sept. 12), or Cindy Sherman (until Sept. 19) in LA at the Gagosian Gallery.
