[ installation / curation : Now Showing ]


NOW SHOWING (2021) was an attempt to bring poetry back into an accessible space which wasn’t affected by COVID-19 restrictions: the walk to the store.

The objective of the project was to encourage onlookers to ask themselves, ‘is that poetry’? The project was curated in collaboration with Incident Report and their REPORTS series. This curation was projected for six weeks in early 2021 and featured eight separate pieces.

Incident Report is a space in Hudson, New York which is located in the storefront of the Flow Chart Foundation. Their current project, REPORTS, is a series of illuminated text-based works and adjacent artifacts that are publicly visible 24 hours a day, often displaying notation, transcription, poetry, manifesto, inventory, elegy, code, prayer, instruction, lyric and more.

Special thanks to Jeffrey Lependorf from The Flow Chart Foundation and Max Goldfarb from Incident Reports for working with us on this project.
