A Reading of The Miraculous by Raphael Rubinstein
22 October 2014, 6pm
co-hosted with Paper Monument
On Wednesday, October 22nd, Raphael Rubinstein will present a reading of his latest book, The Miraculous.
Admission is free. Books will be available at the gallery.
The Miraculous presents the artistic avant-gardes of the last five decades as a tapestry of incidents as fascinating and unlikely as any collection of myths or legends. Thinking more of Kafka’s Parables than Vasari’s Lives of the Artists, Rubinstein composes a series of micro-narratives celebrating the mystery and ingeniousness of these human activities which, for lack of a better term, we call “contemporary art.” Featuring writing on fifty artists, including Joseph Beuys, Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic, Lee Lozano, Tseng Kwong Chi, Cindy Sherman, David Hammons, and R.H. Quaytman.
