☞ YR PSYCHIC INTEGRITY IS AT RISK. And, frankly, the only way to protect yrself from the dangers that loom thick in the astral interstice is to take a master class from our premiere spectral spectator: JULAVITS.
☞ BONUS CONTENT: the stage will be shared by Hari Kunzru, who will be launching the paperback of HIS critically-acclaimed novel GODS WITHOUT MEN, as well.
☞ As our narrator warns us in THE VANISHERS’s opening pages, “this is not just a story about how you can become sick by knowing other people. This is a story about how other people can become sick by knowing you.” Accordingly, if I know you and you don’t attend? You make me sick and I will make you sick.
BABE ALERT: Meg Howrey’s THE CRANES DANCE
New York City is eternally evolving. From its iconic skyline to its side alleys, the new is perpetually being built on the debris of the past. But a movement to preserve the city’s vanishing landscapes has emerged. For nearly 20 years, Frank Jump has been documenting the fading ads that are visible, but less often seen, all over New York. Disappearing from the sides of buildings or hidden by new construction, these signs are remnants of lost eras of New York’s life. They weave together the city’s unique history, culture, environment and society and tell the stories of the businesses, places and people whose lives transpired among them – the story of New York itself. Fading Ads is also a study of time and space, of mortality and living, as Jump’s campaign to capture the ads mirrors his own struggle with HIV. Experience the ads—shot with vintage Kodachrome film—and the meaning they carry through acclaimed photographer and urban documentarian Frank Jump’s lens.
