|Please join Visual AIDS for Between the Lines, readings by Bill Kushner and Dan Fishback, plus a special viewing of Eric Rhein: Transmutation on Saturday April 2 from 4 - 6 pm / Readings begin at 5 pm. Space is limited, please RSVP by March 31.|
Bill Kushner is the author of 7 books of poetry, including IN SUNSETLAND WITH YOU published by Straw Gate Books. Kushner is one of New York’s most passionately inventive poets and playwrights, as offbeat and relentless as Alan Ginsberg and the Village Beatniks, as funny and intellectually sharp as the New York School's John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara, and as spiritually searching and inspiring as New York's first bard, Walt Whitman. He is a New York Foundation of The Arts fellow in 1999 and 2005. His latest book “Walking After Midnight" will be published this spring, and is “full of sexy surprises”.
Dan Fishback has been writing and performing in New York City since 2003. His most recent play, You Will Experience Silence (Stephen Brackett, dir.) debuted to critical acclaim in April 2009 at Dixon Place, where Fishback was an Artist-in-Residence. He has performed at Performance Space 122, Joe's Pub, Galapagos Art Space and various of other venues in New York and abroad. He is currently developing two new theater pieces: The Material World, a pop musical about socialist Jews in the 1920s, and thirtynothing, a solo performance about growing up in the shadow of the AIDS epidemic. Fishback will perform thirtynothing at Brooklyn Arts Exchange on April 8-10, 2011. www.danfishback.com
Eric Rhein's exhibition Transmutation, is on view from February 12 through April 9, 2011 at BoxoFFICE
Eric Rhein, a native of New York's Hudson Valley, is known for his refined and passionate wire drawings that combine human forms with animal and plant life. He weaves personal stories, experiences and mysticism into explorations of the powerful connections among man, nature, and the spiritual world. The exhibition features Rhein's own photographs, as well as vintage photography of male nudes, combined with found objects and bronze & silver castings of leaves & twigs. These assemblages, like Rhein's other works, depict a sense of humanity's communion with nature, and evoke figures from Celtic and Egyptian mythology.
Exhibition and Readings are free and open to the public at:
421 Hudson Street, #701, New York, NY 10014
Space for Between the Lines is limited, please RSVP by Thursday, March 31 at 212-627-9855 / info@visualAIDS.org
