#curtaincall for #nightof100solos at @bam_brooklyn tonight. This killer performance was a paean to the brilliant artistry of #mercecunningham, which remains as fresh and essential as ever thanks to flawless staging (#patricialent), riveting music (@johnkingmusicnyc, @davidbehrman, @gelseybell, @matanarobertsstudio, #jessestiles), perfect set design (@patsteir), lighting design (#christineschallenberg) and costuming (@reidbartelme, @harriet.jung) and last but not least, wondrous dancing (@kyleabrahamofficial, @jacquelinebulnes, @cecilycampbelll, @peiju.chienpott, @cloudmaggie, @jjcolls, @mcrousi, @chancellorfalk, @tamishaguy, @jacquelinh, @4est_arch, @eleanorhoulihan. #shaylaviejenkins, @saramearns, @sharonmilanese, #chalvarmonteiro, @david.norsworthy, @keith.sabado, #vickyshick, @jtwazon, #ansonzwingelberg, and anyone I missed from @merce_dance_cunningham).

Great meeting with @clifford_vo and @michelleelligott at @moma this afternoon to discuss Cliff’s artist’s project (one of six to focus on the #momaarchives) that will appear in the next offering from #esopusbooks, “Modern Articlfacts.” Projects by Cliff, @mecstudios, @rheak, @marylum, @michaelrakowitz, and #paulramirezjonas will be interspersed with all 18 installments of the #modernartifacts series from ESOPUS back issues. The book, clocking in at 350 pages, will be our next October.

So psyched to visit @natmeade in his Brooklyn studio this morning. I wrote a review of his show at @honeyramka in @artforum a few months back and have been eager to see more work of his ever since. My expectations were met and handily exceeded by everything I saw here, from tiny, exquisitely rendered studies to finished casein-on-hemp paintings. This is contemporary painting at its very best by someone who is clearly at the top his game.

Received another amazing submission for our #esopusdrawings invitational yesterday via @onemilegallery’s Janet Hicks. This one is deeply meaningful to ESOPUS and to me — it was created by Mark Hogancamp, whose brilliant photos of #Marwencol we debuted in #esopus5. It is what he considers to be his first successful attempt at creating a drawing from memory since the brain injury he suffered after being attacked in 2000. When he started working on it, he told me in an email: “I’m working on a very difficult drawing for ‘the cause’, which is a very welcome challenge for me; and it further forces me to test my limits of recovery and be better than I ever was at illustrating a picture from my mind and putting it on paper.” Mark, you totally nailed it. You've proven once again that your vision, determination, and talent as an artist will always prevail over any and all challenges, however daunting.

Helena Modjeska (1840-1909) was a well-known Polish-born stage actress who settled in Orange County, CA, in 1888. During breaks from her acting stints she decided to write and illustrate a fairy tale, “Titi, Nunu, and Klembolo,” for her grandson, Felix. The 147-page handbound book was recently acquired by UCI Libraries and was disassembled temporarily for conservation; all of its pages are currently on display at Laguna Art Museum, making a strong case for Modjeska as the #bestgrandmotherever.

So great to see @shecky2000 at the ESOPUS office yesterday. Neil was here to check out printer’s proofs for “Other People’s Prescriptions,” his first monograph and the inaugural publication from our new #EsopusBooks imprint. The book will be launched at @artbookps1 on Sunday, April 28, from 3-5, and the event will include a conversation between Neil and #jiatolentino about his brilliant work.

Very excited to drop by McNally Jackson, my favorite Manhattan bookstore, and see copies of #esopusdrawings for sale there. Sarah McNally has revitalized and reimagined the role bookstores can play in a community, and it’s a thrill to have a place on its perfectly curated shelves (or tables, in this case). Thanks to everybody there for the continuing support of our work!

Today I just received in the mail our 75th submission for the #esopusdrawings invitational (from the brilliant composer @carter_burwell). It’s hard to express how gratified, thrilled, and deeply moved I am by all of these extraordinary artworks created by contributors and readers that will now be a part of the @esopusmag archive. Working on an exhibition venue so every one of these can be enjoyed by the public.

Just had a great visit with photographer/documentarian/Lower East Side legend Clayton Patterson and his equally amazing wife and creative partner Elsa Rensaa. I never need an excuse to spend time with Clayton, who contributed his brilliant #pyramidportraits to #esopus24, but I was there today to pick up his 2 (!) submissions to the #esopusdrawings invitational. They are incredible — add “collage artist” to that description above. Thank you, Clayton!

If you’re received a copy of #esopusdrawings you may have noticed that its next-to-last page is blank and perforated for easy removal. We‘ve invited past #esopusmag contributors and subscribers to create an artwork on this page and send it to us to include in the ESOPUS archive (and also to feature in an exhibition of all of these next fall). The submissions are starting to come in from contributors including #edruscha, #richardmisrach, and #melissameyer, and they’re amazing — so grateful to everybody who has chosen to participate in this. (Shown in order here are contributions from @angustrumble, #berndstrik, #alexmasket, @melissameyer201, @barbaraprobst_studio, and @teresa_matas)

12/13/2018

Will Sheff, the front man for @okkervilriver, created a fantastic song, “Famous Tracheotomies,” for the “Organs” CD included with ESOPUS 22: MEDICINE (2015). I asked Will if he’d like to perform the song at a related event at @thekitchen_nyc and he agreed. This image (in #EsopusDrawings) is from a photo I took of him during rehearsal, in which he graciously offered a glimpse of his own tracheotomy scar upon request. #EsopusDrawings is currently available on our website and will be in bookstores (distributed by @artbook) in January.

What a wonderful night...
11/04/2018

What a wonderful night...

This was a bittersweet event—it was both a chance to celebrate the launch of ESOPUS DRAWINGS, a limited edition "sketchbook" filled with drawings by ESOPUS editor Tod Lippy and related to the past 25 issues of the nonprofit arts annual, and an opportunity to commemorate the suspension of its publication (at least for the foreseeable future). The evening included comments by ESOPUS contributor Mary Ellen Carroll and Lippy, and it was a wonderful opportunity for contributors, supporters, colleagues—and several fellow residents and administrators at the MacDowell Colony, where Lippy completed the edition—to connect with one another. Special thanks to Max Schumann, Keith Gray, and the entire staff at Printed Matter for hosting this event; and to Scott Johnson for taking these terrific photos.
