Writer Andrew Durbin is launching his first book, titled Mature Themes, at New York’s New Museum on September 26.
The poetry/art criticism/memoir takes up the subject of disingenuity in the Information Age, examining through various media, voicing what exactly constitutes personal experience nowadays – both online and off – and uncovering the “fading specters of meaning” beneath art and the art market.
The book launch will feature readings by Harry Burke, editor of the I Love Roses When They’re Past Their Best poetry anthology, and House of LaDosha artist-cum-DJ, Juliana Huxtable, as well as a screening of ‘Reifying Desire 6’ by artist Jacolby Satterwhite and a new video by Jesse Darling.
See the New Museum event page for details. **
