Rackstraw Downes will read from Nature and Art are Physical: Art Writing 1967-2008 on March 28th at 6 pm. For those who haven't seen it, Downes was featured on PBS' series Art 21 a few years back. I doubt many people admire the series, but Rackstraw managed to speak beautifully through the muck of it. Also, there's a nice introductory interview at Hyperallergic where you can see images of some fairly recent paintings. The talk comes in advance of the book's publication, but we've had a small number of copies shipped directly from the press. Come early if you'd like to buy a copy and have it signed.
