Spring Street Reading Series: Laura Sims & Julie Chibbaro

SSRS-MAY JPG.jpg

Join us for the first of a monthly reading series to take place in the Gallery at Atlas, Curated by Ruth Danon.

Our first event features renowned authors Laura Sims & Julie Chibbaro, bios to follow:

Laura Sims will be reading from her novel "Looker"

Laura Sims is the author of "Looker", a debut novel, and four books of poetry, including "Staying Alive", "My god is this a man ", "Stranger ", and "Practice, Restraint". She has published individual poems in Black Clock, Boston Review, Conjunctions, Denver Quarterly, Gulf Coast, Fence, jubilat, New Republic, and numerous other journals. Sims edited and introduced Fare Forward: Letters from David Markson (powerHouse, 2014), a collection of letters spanning her seven-year correspondence and friendship with the celebrated experimental novelist. She has written book reviews and essays for a number of journals, including Boston Review, New England Review, The Review of Contemporary Fiction, Poetry Foundation, Jacket, and Rain Taxi, and has been a Featured Writer for the Poetry Foundation’s Harriet blog. A native of Richmond, Virginia, Sims attended the College of William and Mary as an undergraduate; she later received her MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) at University of Washington in Seattle. Sims was awarded a 2006 US-Japan Creative Artist Exchange Fellowship, and since 2003 she has taught creative writing and English at Baruch College, NYU-SPS, Poets House, and other institutions. Sims is Editor-at-Large for The Scofield and a co-editor of Instance Press. She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science at Queens College.

Review of "Looker" by Mona Awad, author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl

“With an agile precision reminiscent of Lydia Davis, Laura Sims captures the obsessiveness of a woman who unravels after the collapse of her marriage. A taut, gripping portrait, all the more sinister for its elegance.”


Julie Chibbaro will be reading from her book "Deadly".

Julie Chibbaro is the award-winning author of three books: Into the "Dangerous World", a novel about a girl artist on the NY streets in 1984, "Deadly", a medical mystery about the hunt for Typhoid Mary in 1906, and "Redemption" a historical novel about a girl's unintended trip to the New World in 1524.

"Deadly" won the 2011 National Jewish Book Award, and was Top 10 on the American Library Association's Amelia Bloomer Project list. It was named a Bank Street Best Book, and an Outstanding Science Trade Book by the National Science Teachers Association and is now part of many schools’ curriculum. Redemption was nominated for the Illinois HS Book Award, and won the 2005 American Book Award.

Review of "Deadly" by NYT Sunday Book Review

"Paced like a medical thriller, “Deadly” is the rare Y.A. novel in which a girl’s intellectual interests trump adolescent romance. A 16-year-old Jewish tenement dweller in 1906 New York pines away days at a finishing school on scholarship and nights helping midwife young mothers. When she quits school to assist the Department of Health and Sanitation in its pursuit of “Typhoid Mary,” she is awakened to nascent opportunities for women in science."

Retread by Matt Kinney

The Gallery at Atlas Presents:

"Retread" by Matt Kinney

Opening: Saturday, July 7, 2-9pm

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new solo show in the Gallery at Atlas; “Retread” is a new body of work by Newburgh-based artist Matt Kinney. This latest body of work marks a huge transition for Kinney.

In “Retread,” Kinney takes objects that create our physical connection with the Earth and transforms them into unrecognizable creations that are both graphically-inclined and experimental. A tire tread becomes a sculpture with two bold yellow stripes forging a visual dialogue with the open road, while a tractor is dismantled and organized into a new, dynamic shape. The original branding remaining on the object is the only mark identifying Kinney's sculpture's as formerly functional objects.

Jazz at Atlas presents: Broken Shadows

A powerhouse convergence of four eminent players — Tim Berne on alto saxophone; Chris Speed on tenor saxophone and clarinet; Reid Anderson on bass; and Dave King on drums — gather "to reinterpret the timeless sounds conjured by great men from the rural South and heartland of the country: Ornette Coleman, Julius Hemphill, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden. These iconic figures created an ever-resonant avant-garde out of the folk-art influences of their early surroundings, a canon that comprises the hard blues and deep lament, keening celebration and hollering protest."

Joseph Moore

Alison Moritsugu

Sarah Cameron Sunde

Mark Tribe

Jayoung Yoon

Eco-Practicum

 

 

In Sarah Cameron Sunde’s 12 hour video, 36.5 A durational Performance with the Sea, a woman in a red dress faces down the immense ocean expanse as the tide rises menacingly to her neck and just as slowly recedes. This is the frail human body facing epochal change, standing witness to shifting geographies, toxic landscapes, and a warming climate. The artists in Land and Time confront monumental transformations through video, sculpture, performance, and painting, embracing time as a palpable element in their work. These artists mine forgotten histories or expose imagined landscapes, reminding us that every “landscape is not a record but a recording,” polyvalent and multivocal. Land and time are in flux, unable to be pinned down, frozen, or commodified. And yet, they reflect upon us.

 

Michael Ashkin’s cardboard sculptures depicting megaphone platforms built onto abandoned infrastructure reference the history of communist Appalachian coal miners seizing their means of production in the 1970s. They conjure ghosts of hope and reference the etchings of politics on the American landscape. 

 

Alison Moritsugu’s work examines how images of the land shape conceptions of the natural world. Her large-scale paintings capture what little remains of the once mighty pineapple and sugarcane industries in Hawai’i, the artist’s place of birth. In Big Pineapple, fields on the Wahiawa plain are left unharvested as the land transitions to another crop; King Cane depicts what once was the last working sugar cane plantation on Maui.

 

Mark Tribe’s Rare Earth series explores the function of landscape as a symbolic setting for paramilitary fantasy. These striking photographs of landscapes found in combat video games and moving pictures shot at a militia training ground in Upstate New York depict a nature more beautiful, more real, than the thing itself - its perversion undermines conventional notions of natural beauty. 

 

In Suspect Revival, artist Eliza Evans wraps dead trees and tree limbs in heavy gauge plastic and suspends them from living trees. The embalmed forms are anchored to the ground through an intricate network of taught twine, mimicking those fungal networks that sustain live trees, but here only delay decay.

 

In Joseph Moore’s 24.237.237.93, a 24-hour webcam video of two polar bear worker/performers at the Anchorage zoo is compressed into a time-lapse of only a few minutes. For these animals, the zoo is an human-invented landscape offering refuge from a native habitat that is increasingly inhospitable due to human intervention.

 

Jayoung Yoon uses hair sheared from her head to create sculptures that the artist wears and performs in as a tool for perceptual awakening. Each strand of hair is hand knotted or woven into delicate forms, conjuring invisible thoughts and memories. Her sculpture, Branch, eerily connects between a discarded tree limb and the artist’s own appendages, suggesting both the immortality of our refuse, as well as a physical merger of the mortal body with an equally mortal landscape. 

 

Eco Practicum, an artist-run school for ecological justice, presents a full day of talks and performances with Newburgh historians, anti-gentrification activists, artists, and real-estate developers. The day situates the gallery itself within Newburgh’s own land and time, using each of the works in the exhibition as a spark for further dialogue concerning issues of immediate concern. The date of time of the event is to be determined and will be announced separately.
