Mature Themes launch @ New Museum, Sep 26

23 September 2014

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.

Jacolby Satterwhite @ First Street Green, Mar 9 – 15

10 March 2014

Jacolby Satterwhite is screening three films, including clips from his most recent ‘Reifying Desire 6’ (2014), at New York’s First Street Green Cultural Park, running March 9 to 15.

Supported by OHWOW and OSMOS, the screen run, which includes ‘Forest Nymphs’ (2009) and ‘Reifying Desire 2’ (2011), follows attempts to decode the body by displacing it within an unfamiliar context.

Working across video, performance, 3D animation, drawing, and printmaking, Satterwhite explores themes of “memory, desire, ritual, and heroism” through his own body, while interrogating narrative processes across time and media, examining history, insider and outsider practice and queer phenomenology.
